Punjab records over 600 farm fires as farmers continue stubble burning, defying SC order


Stubble burning: Farmers continued to set crop residue ablaze, thus contributing to the over 600 stubble-burning incidents that took place in Punjab on Saturday (November 18), defying the Supreme Court’s orders to stop the farm fires which is a major cause of air pollution in the neighbouring regions including the national capital. Air quality indices remained in 'very poor' and 'poor' categories in many parts of Haryana and Punjab. Several farmers in Punjab continued to burn straw even after the district police chiefs and deputy commissioners in various districts visited fields to check stubble-burning incidents.
