Several trains and flights were delayed on Thursday as an intense cold wave gripped most parts of north India including Delhi. The intense cold has also resulted in a deterioration of air quality in parts of the national capital.
At least 25 trains coming to Delhi have been delayed by two hours or more on account of dense fog in the morning while several flights were cancelled in the morning due to the ongoing cold wave across north India, reports India Today.
