A tragic incident took place on Friday when the roof at IGI Airport Terminal 1 collapsed, killing one person. The civil aviation minister announced a compensation of Rs.20 lakh for the family of the deceased and Rs.3 lakh for each person injured in the incident. Several parts of Delhi and adjoining regions, such as Noida and Gurugram, have been impacted by rain since Thursday. "The heavy rainfall activity over Delhi during the early hours of 28 June can be attributed to the following - considering the monsoon circulation, the advance of the monsoon was stalled over eastern India for quite a long time due to a weaker monsoon current over the Bay of Bengal. It revived becoming stronger gradually from 25 June onwards with the development of an upper air cyclonic circulation over central and adjoining north Bay of Bengal in middle tropospheric levels," the IMD said in the statement.
