A thick haze engulfed the national capital and adjoining regions on Thursday morning as Delhiites continued to burst firecrackers on Diwali long after the deadline set by the Supreme Court.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) was recorded at 999 in Delhi’s Anand Vihar and around Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium, and at 459 in the Chanakyapuri area around the US embassy — all under the 'Hazardous' category, ANI reported.
