New Delhi, March 19, 2017: The Delhi Police on Sunday said traffic restriction here have been scaled down after the Haryana Jat leaders decided to postpone their protest in the national capital but security arrangements will be kept in place to handle any untoward incident.

The police on Saturday said traffic on several Delhi roads will be closed on Monday, and asked the Metro to curtail its services to neighbouring Haryana and Uttar Pradesh in a bid to prevent the entry of protestors here.

“The traffic restrictions for March 20 have been scaled down. All roads will remain open to normal traffic. Commuters are, however, requested to avoid areas in New Delhi as certain security checks will still be in place,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Garima Bhatnagar said.

Special Commissioner of Police (Operations) Dependra Pathak said three-tier security right from the city’s borders to the New Delhi area will remain. It will help monitor the security situation.

“As we know that the agitation has been called off, restrictions, particularly on the Metro, local trains, buses and other public transport, have been eased and these will ply normally. But security arrangements already made at border in central Delhi and New Delhi area will remain.

“Police presence will be ensured. We are continuously monitoring the situation,” the officer added. (IANS)
