NEW DELHI:Delhi Metro services return to normalcy after twelve metro stations were shut on Sunday, due to ensuing violence in the national capital.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) that runs the metro services in the capital said in a security update on Monday: "Entry & exit gates at all stations have been opened. Normal services have resumed in all stations."

This brought relief to many office goers as the week starts and morning rushhours began.

On Sunday, the Delhi Metro had suspended services at 12 metro stations in the Magenta and Yellow as a precautionary measure.

With protestors gathering in other parts of the city, the metro had decided to suspend services at GTB Nagar, Shivaji Stadium, Patel Chowk, Vishwavidyalaya, Vasant Vihar, Munirka, RK Puram, Sukhdev Vihar, Jamia Millia Islamia, Okhla Vihar, Jasola Vihar and Shaheen Bagh.

Trains were not halting at these stations as entry and exit gates were closed.

Earlier on Sunday evening, Delhi metro had suspended services at the Ashram metro station as a precautionary measure.
