He got injured after a wall collapsed on him while he was sleeping in his house.

An 18-year-old man was killed in Delhi after a powerful dust storm lashed the National Capital Region in the early hours of Wednesday, PTI reported.

The police control room received at least 59 calls about fallen trees, five calls about fallen electricity poles and 11 calls about hoardings or wall collapse, police said. The dust storm coupled with rain and lightning uprooted trees and disrupted rail and flight services and brought traffic to a standstill.

A day after Delhi saw a severe dust storm and winds at 107 kmph killing two people here, the national capital on Monday saw a calm day.
