New Delhi: In a bid to contain flow of protesters near India Gate, four Delhi Metro stations near the War Memorial will remain closed from Sunday morning till further orders.
    
The metro stations that will remain closed will be Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan and Race Course stations, DMRC officials said.
    
The closing of stations for an indefinite time came following a direction from Delhi Police.
    
"The stations will remain closed till DMRC gets further orders from the Delhi Police. All the four stations are close to India Gate. However, interchange will be allowed at Central Secretariat station," the officials said.
    
The decision was taken after protests over the gangrape of a young girl erupted in Raisina Hill, the seat of power.
     
Thousands of youth on Saturday clashed with police undeterred by the repeated use of water cannons, teargas shells and baton charge.
    
Demonstrators comprising girls and boys gathered right from the morning at India Gate and marched to Raisina Hill where Rashtrapati Bhavan and Prime Minister's Office are located.
