Air pollution in the Indian capital has risen to hazardous levels, after firecrackers were set off to celebrate Diwali, despite a court ban.

Residents awoke today to find the city blanketed in a toxic fog!
The Supreme Court had restricted the timeframe for setting off firecrackers to only two hours in the night, but the order was openly flouted.

The levels of the tiny particulate matter known as ‘PM 2.5’ that enters deep into the lungs, reached as high as 999 micrograms per cubic metre, in some areas of the capital this morning.
