The Delhi Police have issued prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Code Of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) in a few areas of the national capital ahead of the Congress’ march opposing Enforcement Directorate’s summons to their leader Rahul Gandhi. 

The Enforcement Directorate has issued summons to Rahul Gandhi in a money laundering case. The Congress party had announced a protest rally. 

The Congress workers will be marching from their office to the ED office to protest against the central agency’s summons against Rahul Gandhi. Senior Congress leaders from different states are expected to join the political rally in support of Gandhi.

The police said the Congress workers’ rally may affect traffic in the city. 

The Delhi Police have made special arrangements restricting the movement of several buses and vehicles across the New Delhi district and borders. 

DCP (New Delhi) Amrutha Guguloth released an order denying permission for the All India Congress Committee (AICC) rally from Akbar Road to the ED office in New Delhi.

The area has been barricaded and no vehicles are allowed. The police have also asked commuters to avoid using Gol Methi junction, Tughlak Road Junction, Claridges Junction, Q-point Junction, Sunehri Masjid Junction, Maulana Azad Road Junction and Man Singh Road Junction till noon.
