- Story Text: As the cold wave tightens its grip in northern India, a thick layer of fog engulfed most of the cities on Thursday (December 26) leaving passengers waiting for hours as their journeys were delayed.
The situation in Kanpur city of India's most populous state Uttar Pradesh was not very different as the city griped under the influence of thick layer of fog.
A commuter from Kanpur, Basu said his train was delayed by seven-to-eight hours due to heavy fog.
Locals were seen wearing layers of woollens and warming up themselves near fires on roadsides to brave the chilly weather.
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.
