JAIPUR: Poor visibility due to dense fog has affected air, road and rail traffic across the state by claiming four lives as a bus collided with two cars near Jhandawali village in Hanumangarh district during early hours on Thursday.
According to police, two cars heading towards Hanumangarh from Sriganganagar collided head on with a bus coming from the opposite direction. The deceased were identified as Shrawan Kaur (45), Nakshatra Singh (45), his wife Rano Kaur (40) and his mother Jeeto (65) while two others suffered injuries in a separate car accident and rushed to hospital.
least six early morning flights were diverted to Jaipur airport from Delhi during the day while at least 12 early morning trains arrived beyond the scheduled time at Jaipur railway station. Buses on the highways connecting Jaipur to Agra and Jaipur to Delhi were moving in comparatively slower pace as poor visibility prevailed on highway. Amidst fog, Jaipurites woke up to a chilly morning as a minimum temperature of 12.8 degrees Celsius was recorded in the city. During early morning hours, visibility in many areas in the outskirts of Jaipur was very poor due to fog.
Attributing the foggy condition to the active western disturbances, Jaipur Met office said that mercury will take a dip across the state when fog is going to vanish from next week onwards. "It is going to be mainly clear sky and revival of northerly winds which will guide mercury to take a dip across the state," said an officer with the Jaipur Met office.
Udaipur remained coldest in the state where a minimum temperature of 10.6 degrees Celsius was recorded. In its forecast, Jaipur Met office said that fog and mist would be witnessed in some parts of eastern and northern Rajasthan in the next 24 hours.
