Heat conditions persist in region

Chandigarh, June 8
Sultry conditions persisted at many places in Punjab and Haryana today as people reeled under the second spell of scorching heat conditions which have gripped the region after widespread rains provided respite early this month.

The city and its surrounding areas braved another hot day with many people preferring to stay indoors during most part of the day.

The heatwave in the region has so far claimed 33 lives in the states and the Union Territory of Chandigarh. PTI
