New Delhi: Traffic ran out of gear in South Delhi on Wednesday night due to diversions and disruptions in the wake of the protest against the demolition of a religious structure illegally built on government land.

People had a tough time reaching their homes due to diversions and traffic congestion which hit Ring Road and other arterial roads.

Traffic was blocked at Nizamuddin crossing on the busy Delhi-Mathura Road the whole day as demonstrators were protesting the demolition at Jangpura-B. It led to huge traffic pile-up at Ashram Chowk as well as near Hotel Oberoi.

Reaching localities like Jangpura, Defence Colony, Bhogal and Ashram prove difficult. While Mathura Road stretch was not open for vehicles, entry points through a parallel road were blocked by placing water pipes on roads.

Passengers headed to Nizamuddin railway station were a harrowed lot as protestors and police did not allow any vehicle on the route.
