All metro stations, excluding Jamia Millia Islamia and Jasola Vihar-Shaheen Bagh, were opened by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) after as many as 20 stations were closed on Thursday as people, staging protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (2019) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), gathered at various venues.

The protesters assembled despite massive police deployment and the imposition of prohibitory orders.

"All entry & exit gates of Chandni Chowk, Barakhamba, Mandi House, Pragati Maidan, Lal Quila, Jama Masjid, Delhi Gate, ITO, Janpath, Khan Market, Vasant Vihar and Munirka are open," the DMRC tweeted.

The busy Rajiv Chowk metro station, Vishwavidyalaya, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan and Lok Kalyan Marg stations were also now open for public.

Earlier in the day, entry and exit gates of Barakhamba, Vasant Vihar, Mandi House, Central Secretariat, Patel Chowk, Lok Kalyan Marg, Udyog Bhawan, ITO, Pragati Maidan, and Khan Market were closed. "Trains will not be halting at these stations," read a tweet on the official Twitter handle of DMRC.

"Entry & exit gates of Lal Quila, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk and Vishwavidyalaya are closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations. Entry and exit gates of Jamia Millia Islamia, Jasola Vihar, Shaheen Bagh and Munirka are closed. Trains will not be halting at these stations," tweeted DMRC earlier in the morning.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has shut several metro stations in the national capital on a number of occasions over the past few days in wake of anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests across the city.

This is the fifth successive day when metro services have been affected by anti-CAA protests in the national capital.
