Thick smog blankets Delhi after diwali

Air quality in the Indian capital city of New Delhi is expected to remain in the "severe" category as people violated the court ban on firecrackers. 
 
The city was engulfed in a thick haze as many people refused to stick to the two-hour deadline set by the country's top court. 

According to reports, the overall AQI in Delhi jumped to 642 which falls in the "severe-plus emergency" category.
