New Delhi: A thick blanket of smog enveloped several parts of Delhi Sunday, the day after Diwali when people defied a ban on lighting firecrackers.
The air quality in several parts of the national capital was recorded in the ‘severe’ category. The Air Quality Index in ITO and Anand Vihar areas were recorded at 461 and 478, respectively, according to the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) data.
Diwali this year also coincided with a spike in stubble burning incidents in Punjab and Haryana.
