Delhi Metro shuts Green Line stns between Tikri Kalan, Brigadier Hoshiar Singh
The Delhi Metro has temporarily closed off the entry and exit to stations from Tikri Kalan to Brigadier Hoshiar Singh on the Green Line (connecting Kirti Nagar and Brigadier Hoshiar Singh Metro stations).
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), on Monday at 10am, said on Twitter that the gates will remain closed.
“Security Update: Entry/exit gates of stations from Tikri Kalan to Brigadier Hoshiar Singh on green line are closed,” DMRC tweeted.
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.
