A short spell of rain on Friday afternoon in the national capital brought more misery than joy to the citizens as they faced traffic snarls and water-logging at various places.

At Kalindi Kunj area, people coming towards Noida had to negotiate a waterlogged underpass at Sarita Vihar.

"Ankle-deep dirty water accumulated in the underpass. The traffic was agonizingly slow," said a commuter.

The Meteorological Department had in morning predicted moderate rain at places. It has predicted either light rain or thundershowers in the coming days.

According to Delhi Traffic Police, several places witnessed heavy traffic jams. Water-logging was the main culprit at Captain Gaur Road near Okhla Mandi, Lal Kuan on Mehrauli-Badarpur Road, Pul Prahalad Pur railway underpass, and on Ring Road from Ashram to Dhaula Kuan.

THe traffic police also alerted riders of water-logging on Rao Tula Ram Marg going towards airport from Munirka, Bhairon Marg, Mathura Road, Modi Mill flyover and traffic jams on Sardar Patel Marg towards Mother Teresa Crescent Road, and on Ring Road Greater Kailash.
