Delhi heatwave: The Delhi heatwave has claimed the life of a 40-year-old man. The man from Bihar's Darbhanga died at Delhi's Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on Wednesday.

A doctor who checked him stated that he was staying in a room without a cooler or fan and had a high fever. According to the doctor, the body temperature reached 107 degrees Celsius, which is approximately 10 degrees higher than normal. This is the first heat-stroke fatality reported in Delhi this summer.


The national capital has been experiencing a summer nightmare, with record-breaking heat, unprecedented power demand, and a debilitating water problem.

Residents of the capital have been dealing with a scorching heatwave for the past week. To add to the weather difficulties, certain areas of Delhi are experiencing a drinking water shortage. The Aam Aadmi Party government has accused the Haryana government of depriving Delhi of its rightful share of Yamuna water.

Geeta Colony and some parts of Chanakyapuri get a minimal supply of water via tankers.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has appealed to residents to use drinking judiciously. As many as 200 teams have been formed to identify and investigate water waste situations. Washing cars with pipes, overflowing water tanks, and using drinking water for commercial reasons will result in a Rs 2000 fine.
