Earlier this week, the Delhi government announced a "yellow alert" in the city restricting public gatherings and allowing only 50 percent of crowds inside public transport — metro trains and buses.
An agitated crowd on Thursday blocked roads in Delhi and vandalised a bus after passengers were denied boarding in view of a 50 percent capacity limit recently imposed due to the spread of the Omicron variant of coronavirus.

According to a local media report: "Many passengers were waiting for the bus for more than 70 minutes. As one of the buses arrived at the Sangam Vihar bus stop, only 17 passengers were allowed inside a bus, driver and conductor denied entry citing COVID protocol, which infuriated the daily commuters".

The angry mob resorted to stone-throwing due to which the bus' window panes broke.
The Delhi Police said as a preventive measure they detained five people who were released later.
