Hindu outfits in Gurugram had on Wednesday urged the district authorities to designate open spaces for Friday prayers away from temples.
They also sought a verification of citizenship documents of persons offering Muslim prayers in the open areas.
"Police had identified 76 sites where 'namaz' is offered in the open. The team had time till Thursday morning to visit all of these sites and ensure that the Friday prayers was not offered on greenbelts and roads. But since no final decision was taken till late Thursday, the administration appointed 76 Duty Magistrates to maintain law and order," a government spokesperson said in a statement.
