Fog hits train, flight services for 2nd day

Dense fog prevails in NCR

Similarly, 62 trains have been delayed, 20 rescheduled and 18 cancelled to and from the two main railway stations - New Delhi railway station and Old Delhi railway station, a senior Indian Railways official said.

Low visibility due to the fog has disrupted flight operations at the Indira Gandhi International airport.

Thursday turned out to be Delhi's coldest day of the season, with the minimum temperature hovering around 5 degrees Celsius. Train and flight services in the national Capital continued to suffer for the third straight day.

As many as 500 flights, both domestic and global, flying into and out of the IGI Airport have been affected since Sunday, when the city witnessed the worst fog of the season.
