Heavy dust storms that swept across several parts of western and northern India on Wednesday have killed at least 77 people and injured a hundred and a half in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand, while leaving a trail of destruction, uprooting trees and disrupting power supply in Punjab and Haryana.

Most of the victims were hit by falling walls and trees.

"We can confirm at least 46 deaths, 41 injuries from around 40 of the state's 75 districts," T.P. Gupta of the Uttar Pradesh relief commissioner's office told AFP.
