"The Yamuna Expressway has been closed and barricaded. Those wanting passage will be allowed only if they have a valid reason. The expressway would remain open for emergency services," Deputy Commissioner of Police, Greater Noida, Rajesh Singh, said.    The district police have also put restrictions on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, which connects road traffic with the Yamuna Expressway.
