People, fearing the scorching sun, are preferring to stay indoors and, as a result, roads wear a deserted look. Particularly, the aged have been advised to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Meanwhile, in the neighbouring state of Telangana, the maximum temperature crossed 44 degrees Celsius on the mercury scale in several districts on Tuesday. Four persons reportedly died of sunstroke.
