New Delhi: The passage between Kalindi Kunj to Nodia (via Road No. 9, Okhla) which was blocked for more than two months due to the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests at Shaheen Bagh was opened on Saturday.

The move comes four days after the Supreme Court-appointed interlocutors met the protesters at Shaheen Bagh.

"If the road isn't cleared, then even we would not be able to help you. We are not saying that Shaheen Bagh should be dismantled", Sadhna Ramachandran told while addressing the protesters Saturday.

The protesters asked her if there was any direction from the Supreme Court about their security. They also demanded that cases against Jamia and Shaheen Bagh protesters should be withdrawn.

The protesters also demanded that the proposed National Population Register should not be implemented and action should be taken against ministers for their controversial remarks. The families of those who died or injured during the agitation should be given compensation and the government should promise security for the protesters.

Meanwhile, DCP South East R.P. Meena visited the site to review the situation. However, the barricades are partially placed and the police are checking every car passing through the passage.
