A protest march against the Citizenship Amendment Act from the Jama Masjid from the Jantar Mantar on Friday was stopped by police at the Delhi Gate.

According to Delhi Police officials, a large posse of security forces was deployed at the Delhi Gate, near the Bahadur Zafar Shah Marg, and barricades were installed at Daryaganj Chowk, around a kilometer away towards the Jama Masjid.
