Dense fog and dip in temperature on Friday disrupted the normal life, affecting air, rail and road traffic this morning.

The maximum and minimum temperature were recorded 21.9 degree celsius and 7.8 degree celsius.

Operations of more than 50 flights were affected at the Indira Gandhi International Airport due to low visibility.

Due to the poor visibility flight operations were delayed for hours. On the other hand, several Delhi-bound trains are also reported to be running late due to which passengers have to suffer a lot.

The fog is so dense that the runway visibility dropped to below 50 metres on both the runways at the IGI.

According to the Meteorological department, suspended dust particle and moisture in the air resulted in the formation of fog. (ANI)
