Delhi storm toll mounts to 14

The dust storm that hit the national capital on Friday evening has so far caused at least 14 deaths, most of which occurred because of falling trees and collapsing walls. About 30 people have also been reported injured so far.

Apart from uprooted trees and collapsed walls, there were also two known incidents of people being killed by objects flying in the air because of the storm.

One such incident was reported from east Delhi and the other from west Delhi. At west Delhi’s Nihal Vihar, a hoarding fell on a 48-year-old man, killing him instantly. In another tragic incident, a 17-year-old boy Anu, and not a girl as reported by Deccan Herald earlier, was beheaded by a flying tin roof of his neighbour’s house. The roof also injured his mother Manjeet Kaur who needed to be hospitalised.
