Traffic cops stand tall as Delhi sizzles at 44 degrees

There are at least 2,500 Delhi traffic personnel out in the field at any given day and  many of them are on the roads for as long as 12 hours.

Neighbourhood News Desk: Wiping the sweat dripping down his brow and taking sips of lemonade that his wife sent for him to beat the soaring heat, 38-year-old Pradeep Singh Rajput, a traffic constable with the Delhi Police, was resolving a tussle between two drivers at west Delhi’s Dabri Mor intersection while also trying to man the traffic on the busy road on Wednesday.

In the last two days, the temperature in Delhi touched 44 degree Celsius, but that did not stop Rajput and his colleagues from being out on the road all day directing traffic and issuing challans to those violating traffic rules.Traffic police officials across the city have been at the receiving end because of the heat wave in the national capital.
