Heavy rains in Delhi cancels Kerry’s visit to religious sites


New Delhi: Heavy rains in the national capital since Wednesday morning forced US Secretary of State John Kerry to cancel his proposed visit to three religious sites in the city.

Kerry was scheduled to visit the Gauri Shankar temple, Jama Masjid and Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib in the old Delhi area around 11 AM on Wednesday.

“The visit had to be cancelled due to heavy rains in Delhi,” sources in the US Embassy said.
