As the board examination is just months away, Delhi police on Monday (January 21) appealed to protesters at Shaheen Bagh to unblock the road after parents and schoolchildren are facing hardships to reach schools and coaching centres.

The Delhi Police took Twitter to appeal to people.

“We have already appealed to you once before. Meanwhile, more complaints have been received regarding inconvenience due to blockade of Road No.13A, particularly to school children who are facing extreme hardship in reaching their schools, coaching centres and private tuitions,” they tweeted.

“Their parents have expressed deep anxiety in view of forthcoming Board examinations. Daily commuters, local residents and businesspersons are also facing acute harassment. We once again appeal to the protesters at Shaheen Bagh to clear the road and restore normal traffic,” the department said in Twitter.
