It has been raining cats and dogs in Delhi. The roads are water logged and a lot of damage has happened in the city including the collapsing of walls and houses.

Recently, Apeejay school's boundary wall collapsed in Saket area's J Block damaging several cars parked beside the wall.

The wall of the school collapsed around 11:30 am after heavy rainfall in the morning. No injuries have been reported from the incident.

The residents living in the area were upset that the school authorities did not offer any help hours after the incident occurred.

Delhi traffic police officials said that jams are reported from Dwarka Link Road, Barapullah, Dhaula Kuan, Rao Tula Ram Marg, Moti Bagh intersection, South Extension (Ring Road), Ashram intersection, Delhi-Noida Direct Flyway, Noida Link Road and Vikas Marg.

CM Kejriwal tweeted, "This year, all agencies, be it Delhi government or MCD, are busy with corona control. This is not the time to blame each other. Everyone has to fulfil their responsibilities together,"
