10 Metro stations to remain closed tomorrow

Delhi Metro

Ten Metro stations in Central Delhi, which were closed down on Saturday for an indefinite period, will be out of bounds for the public tomorrow as well to prevent agitators from reaching India Gate to protest the death of the gangrape victim.

All the stations which were locked down are close to India Gate and Raisina Hill, the epicentre of the protests against the brutal gangrape.

The stations that will remain closed tomorrow are Pragati Maidan, Mandi House, Barakhamba Road, Rajiv Chowk, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, Race Course, Jor Bagh and Khan Market.

However, inter-change facility will be allowed at Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat stations, DMRC officials said.

The decision to close down the Metro stations was taken by Delhi Police which is making all out efforts to prevent protesters from reaching India Gate. They have already blocked the entire India Gate area.

Police had last week also closed down Metro stations to prevent protesters from reaching the protest sites.
