Several trains, including Rajdhanis, to and from railway stations in Delhi were running several hours behind the schedule due to heavy fog that engulfed the national capital on Monday.

The Rajdhanis running late included Mumbai-Delhi, Howrah-New Delhi, Rajindra Nagar (Patna)-New Delhi and Bhubhaneswar-New Delhi.

The Rajdhani trains were running two to three hours behind schedule.

The long distance trains running late due to fog were Gaya-New Delhi Mahabodi Express, Chennai Central-New Delhi Grand Trunk Express, Allahabad-New Delhi Prayagraj Express, Howrah-New Delhi Poorva Express and Udhampur-New Delhi Uttar Sampark Kranti Express.

These trains were running four to five hours behind the schedule.
