Pollution levels in Delhi have spiked again, pushing the air quality of the national capital and surrounding areas from 'moderate' to 'severe' category.

Strong-anti cyclonic winds blowing from Rajasthan are the reason behind the worsening air quality.

According to AQICN, on Wednesday morning, many places in Delhi saw the air quality index touching above 500, causing hazy conditions and leading to a dip in visibility.

It is to be noted that a number of dust storms have struck the northern part of India several times in this year's summer season, causing casualties and loss of properties.
