Jammu: Curfew continued for the second day on Friday in the border town of Rajouri in Jammu and Kashmir, where authorities have detained 13 persons for questioning in connection with Wednesday's communal clashes.

"The curfew will continue today in the border town of Rajouri district without any relaxation," Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajouri Vijay Singh Sambyal said.

No untoward incident has been reported from anywhere in the district so far and the situations are under control, he said.

Additional security personnel have been deployed in sensitive areas of the town to maintain peace and tranquility, he added.

Police as a precautionary measure had imposed curfew in the town yesterday after some unidentified persons pelted stones at a religious procession, prompting security personnel to lob tear gas shells to disperse them.

"We have detained 13 persons in connection with the incident for questioning," SSP said.

The stone-pelters were protesting against the recent remarks of VHP International President Praveen Togadia that allegedly hurt the sentiments of a particular community.

A case was registered by the police in this connection.
