At least 10 people died in rain-related incidents in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab on Tuesday, even as the heat wave gripped the rest of north India, claiming one life in Rajasthan.

Sudden rain, accompanied by winds of high velocity, led to several incidents of wall collapse in Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, killing seven persons and injuring 12. The winds also uprooted electricity poles and trees at Sadar and Billor, shutting down power supply. Three children of a family were buried alive at Tajpur in Punjab after an old building collapsed in the early hours.
