At least one person has died and eight others have been injured after part of the roof of Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport collapsed due to severe weather.

Heavy rainfall and strong winds in New Delhi caused a section of the roof at the airport's Terminal 1 to collapse early on Friday morning. 

Medical services were called to provide aid at the scene as reports indicated one person was trapped under the collapsed roof while others were taken to hospital to be treated.

The terminal, primarily serving low-cost carriers, has cancelled all departures until 2pm IST (12:30pm UAE time).

ARN News Centre has reached out to airlines and is awaiting passenger updates for scheduled flights to New Delhi.
