New Delhi, April 6
Amid rising COVID-19 cases in the national capital, entry to four major stations on the Yellow Line were on Tuesday briefly closed in the afternoon to ensure social distancing, officials said.
The Yellow Line connects Samyapur Badli in Delhi to HUDA City Centre in Gurgaon.
"Yellow Line Update Entry for the following stations are temporarily closed to ensure social distancing as part of our crowd control measures: Patel Chowk New Delhi Chawri Bazar Chandni Chowk Exit is allowed," the DMRC tweeted around 12:30 PM.
