New Delhi: At least three people were killed and six other were injured after a truck ran over them in Uttar Pradesh's Allahabad, due to poor visibility on Thursday night.
The dense fog that engulfed several parts of North India led to the delay of 70 north-bound trains and 49 flights departing from Delhi on Friday. As reported, a Northern Railway official said, Rajdhani trains from Kolkata, Sealdah, Bhubaneswar and Patna were among trains that were three to five hours late.
As per a release issued by Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI), 88 flights were delayed due to fog and other reasons.
As per the MeT Department's forecast, dense fog is likely to blanket north India for another week or so.
