The national capital is in the grip of dengue fever and the worst affected is north Delhi's Narela zone which has seen highest number of dengue cases - 134 out of the total 530 till last count. Even the officials of North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) admit that Narela zone is the most difficult for them to deal with.
