3 Jan 11 - Dozens of people have died in a cold wave sweeping through northern India, the country's state broadcaster Doordarshan says.

The capital, Delhi, has been badly hit by the cold, along with Kashmir, Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.

Delhi is experiencing one of its coldest winters in years.

On Sunday in Delhi, which is experiencing one of its coldest winters in years, the mercury dipped to 7.8C (46F), cold by Delhi standards and especially cold considering that Indian homes rarely have central heating.

The cold wave is being felt most intensely in Kashmir with the summer capital, Srinagar, recording sub-zero temperatures.

In Leh in Kashmir, temperatures dropped to -23.6C (-10.5F) on Sunday, weather officials said.

Meanwhile, the highway linking Kashmir with the rest of India has been shut due to snowfall.
