Delhiites bore the brunt of unusually hot weather with the mercury touching 41.6 degrees Celsius on Sunday, five notches above the normal at this time of the year.

The maximum had crossed 40 degree earlier this week, the first time in five years that such high temperature was experienced in the month of April.

Northern and eastern parts of India sweated it out on Sunday with the mercury crossing the 40-degree mark in several places.

Orissa has reported 23 suspected sunstroke deaths so far this summer.
