Gridlocked traffic on waterlogged roads led to a massive jam that resulted in people getting struck for anywhere 6 to 16 hours depending on the venue. Throughout July 28 evening, commuters spoke of abandoning their cars and wading through knee-deep water to get home.

The situation was so bad that Gurgaon Police asked people from Delhi – many of whom work in Gurgaon – to stay away.

According to Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner TL Satyaprakash, “there were a couple to blunders we did…we apologise to whoever suffered and sincerely regret the inconvenience.”
