The air quality seems to be at its worst in New Delhi after Diwali. The after-effects of Diwali can be clearly witnessed as citizens woke up to see thick smog cover across the city on Wednesday morning. The Indian military’s top doctor and honorary surgeon to President Pranab Mukherjee, Lt Gen BNBM Prasad said that Delhi's pollution levels are a “death sentence” for the children and the aged.

Lt Gen Prasad said that school-going children would get affected severely by the pollution and suggested them not to “venture out till there is some reduction”.
