As the temperature dropped across northern India, number of people looking to cover their heads under insufficient night shelter increased in Delhi.
Scores of people were seen lighting a fire outside night shelters, wrapping themselves in blankets across the national capital in the wee hours of Tuesday (December 17) as the capacity of the night shelter was full.
Coordinator of a shelter near All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) said sometimes people who cannot get a place here would abuse and curse him for accommodating some people for days.
Snowfall in states like Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh has a direct impact in other northern states like Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh.
While winter temperatures in South Asia are mild compared to Europe, they can at times prove deadly in India, where thousands of homeless live in shacks without any heating arrangements.
