New Delhi, July 13: Heavy rains lashed parts of Delhi and the National Capital Region on Friday, causing waterlogging in several areas. Waterlogging in areas such as Rajiv Chowk and Tilak Bridge led to traffic congestion. Following heavy rainfall, waterlogging was reported in several areas including Akbar Road, Tilak Bridge and Rajiv Chowk.

The Delhi Secretariat was also waterlogged as water leaked in the building following the rains. According to the Meteorological department, more rainfall is likely in next few days in Delhi and NCR. The minimum temperature recorded in the region on Friday was 27.8 degrees Celsius, which is slightly higher than the season’s average, news agency PTI reported.

In Gurugram, water logging was also reported at the busy Signature Towers intersection and Golf Course raod. Delhiites breathed clean air last month after nearly a year. The pollution level has since been in check and has remained at satisfactory or moderate level. On Thursday,  heavy rainfall in the national capital kept the pollution level in check as clean, moisture-laden winds replaced the polluted air.
