Elsewhere in the city, motorists drove their vehicles with headlights on due to the smoke cover which descended on the city.

Sun came out shining around 8 am, with visibility levels improving.

It is said that almost 12 flights were diverted and almost 30 delayed in view of the smoke generated due to the ritualistic burning of old articles on account of festivities, which has caused a dip in visibility. The government conducts regular awareness campaigns ahead of Bhogi to promote smoke-free celebrations during the festival.
