Train services hit as dense fog engulfs northern states

New Delhi:

Several trains on Wednesday have either been reportedly cancelled or they are running late as thick fog engulfed north Indian states, reducing visibility completely. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said in its latest update that there is a continuation of dense fog across the northern states of India including Punjab, Northwest Rajasthan, Haryana and East Uttar Pradesh.
Trains were running late by several hours on Tuesday as well due to poor visibility induced by fog. Passengers had to wait for long hours for their respective trains. As many as 32 trains were cancelled in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad were cancelled.
With visibility below 100m at many places, several accidents were reported in the region, leaving three people dead and 40 injured in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, and forcing a change in school timings in Punjab.
