New Delhi, Dec 29 (IBNS) As clamour for justice and reforms grew louder over the death of the Delhi gangrape victim, the authorities clamped down restrictions in the national capital closing metro stations and barring protesters and mourners from moving close to India Gate and other high security areas.
Jantar Mantar and Ramlila Grounds are two sites that the Delhi Police chose for the protesters even as Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit appealed to Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde to allow protesters access to India Gate, the ground zero of protests earlier where the stir had turned violent.
The high security areas of Delhi like the roads on which the residences of Prime Minister, President and other top politicians are located were sealed.
Movement towards Rashtrapati Bhavan has been restricted.
At least ten metro stations in Delhi were closed down.
Pragati Maidan, Mandi House, Barakhamba Road, Rajiv Chowk, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan, Race Course, Jor Bagh and Khan Market are the stations that were closed though interchange facility is allowed at Rajiv Chowk.
