Heavy rainfall in Delhi-NCR on Sunday (July 19) morning brought much-needed respite to people living in Delhi and adjoining areas from sweltering heat but heavy showers also led to waterlogging on several roads of the national capital.
As a result of the waterlogging, a Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus got stuck under the Minto Road Bridge in New Delhi. The passengers of the bus called Delhi Fire Services for the help and they were later rescued by DFS personnel who used a makeshift bridge to rescue the passengers from the bus.
