New Delhi: The Delhi traffic police has issued an advisory asking commuters to avoid Kalindi Kunj, Mathura Road as it has been closed for traffic movement.
“Road No. 13A between Mathura Road and Kalindi Kunj is closed for traffic movement. People coming from Noida are advised to take DND or Akshardham to reach Delhi”, the traffic police tweeted the advisory today.
Notably, the road has been closed for almost a month due to the ongoing anti Citizenship Amendment Act/National Register of Citizens, demonstration in Shaheen Bagh.
The protests had erupted ever since the Narendra Modi-led Centre passed the contentious Act which grants citizenship to six non-Muslim communities — Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian — who have come to India from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan till December 31, 2014 after facing religious persecution.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic Southern) AK Singh had said that the road will open once the local police would tell them to allow the vehicles pass through the road.
