Rising Cases Of Heatstrokes

Swathes of northern India, including the national capital, have been in the grip of a punishingly long heat wave, increasing heat stroke casualties and prompting the Centre to issue an advisory to hospitals to set up special units to cater to such patients. During the past three days, the bodies of 50 people evidently belonging to underprivileged backgrounds were recovered around Delhi, police said on Wednesday.
