New Delhi: Four Metro stations near the North block will be closed today from 9 AM to 1 PM ahead of a protest by the Aam Aadmi Party to demand action against Delhi Police personnel for alleged dereliction of duty.

"As advised by the Delhi Police, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhawan and Race Course metro stations will remain closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the wake of the 'dharna' by the AAP at North Block," the official said.

However, this will not affect the interchange at the Central Secretariat Metro station.

"Controlled exit of government employees from the Central Secretariat station will be allowed after checking their IDs," the official added.

The AAP Sunday said it will go ahead with its protest outside the union home ministry office here Monday if five police officials are not suspended for their alleged inaction in busting a "prostitution and drug racket" and in a dowry case.

The party has alleged that the policemen did not cooperate with Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti during his vigilante-style raid Wednesday night and on minister Rakhi Birla's complaint concerning "improper action" in a dowry case.
