India Gate and its adjacent areas in the national capital will remain out of bounds for public Sunday to prevent mass protests following the Dec 16 gang-rape victim's death, police said.

The 23-year-old woman's body was flown into the city from Singapore early Sunday and cremated here.

Like Saturday, after news of the woman's death came, Delhi Police have closed all roads leading to India Gate.

"Rajpath, Vijay Chowk and all roads leading to India Gate will be closed for general traffic. Travellers are advised to avoid these roads," Delhi Traffic Police posted on its Facebook page.

As many as 10 Delhi Metro stations on three networks -- Yellow, Blue and Violet lines -- also continue to remain shut for an indefinite period.

The stations are Pragati Maidan, Mandi House, Barakhamba Road, Rajiv Chowk, Patel Chowk, Central Secretariat, Udyog Bhavan, Race Course, Jor Bagh and Khan Market.

A metro official said commuters would, however, be able to inter-change trains at the Rajiv Chowk and Central Secretariat stations. But no one will be allowed to enter or exit these stations.
