In a statement, the National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) said that several sections of M-1, M-2, and M-4 motorways have been closed due to low visibility.

Apart from the dense fog, growing air pollution also contributes to the hazardous smog, which not only reduces visibility but also poses a significant threat to people’s health.
