 The entry and exit gates of all metro stations were opened and services had resumed at all stations, the DMRC said on Monday.

In the wake of violence in southeast Delhi after a protest against the amended Citizenship Act, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) closed the gates of around 13 metro stations on Sunday evening, following advice from the police.

"Security Update Entry & exit gates at all stations have been opened. Normal services have resumed in all stations," the DMRC said in a tweet on Monday.


The gates at over 15 metro stations were shut by the DMRC authorities on Sunday night as a precautionary measure amid protests over the citizenship law.

The decision was taken on the advice of the Delhi Police, said the DMRC.

"As advised by Delhi Police, entry & exit gates of Sukhdev Vihar and gate no. 3 of Ashram have been closed. Trains will not be halting at Sukhdev Vihar," DMRC had tweeted on Sunday. In subsequent tweets, it updated on the entry and exit gates of other metro stations being shut.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has also announced that all schools will stay closed in Okhla, Jamia and New Friends Colony as well as the Madanpur Khadar area due to the protests.
