New Delhi: Heavy rains for the second consecutive day on Friday led to waterlogging and traffic congestion in the national capital, compounding problems for commuters.

Heavy traffic congestion was witnessed on the carriageway of RTR Marg from Vasant Kunj towards the IGI Airport, the traffic police said, adding that waterlogging also led to congestion at Okhla Mandi, Badarpur railway underpass, under IP flyover, under Modi mill flyover, Jawaharlal Nehru Road and other areas.

 

In Ghaziabad, many schools remained shut under the directions of the district magistrate on account of heavy rains and adverse weather conditions.
