Senior officials of the Metro said that the gates were closed on the directions of the Delhi Police as a safety measure to maintain peace at the farmers’ protest site.

“Once we get a go-ahead from the police we will resume movement,” a Delhi Metro official said.

Deputy commissioner of police (Metro) Jitendra Mani Tripathi said, “The trains are being terminated at Tikri instead of Tikri border. This is being done as per the outer district’s request.”

According to DCP Metro, the gates were reopened around 4pm and things are normal now.
