Delhi Pollution: Air quality ‘severe’ as national capital chokes

The national capital woke up to a yet another smoggy morning on Friday with the air quality in the 'severe' category. The AQI in Anand Vihar was 585, 343 in RK Puram and 467 in the area around the US Embassy. It is likely to remain in the ‘severe’ category on Friday and Saturday as the smoke emitted by firecrackers has slowed down the process of pollutant dispersion, a report by government-run agency SAFAR said Thursday. North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) also sprinkled water on trees in the area around Delhi University's North Campus to settle the dust, as a pollution control measure.
