NEW DELHI: For the second time in three days, visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry got stuck in the Delhi's traffic jam today, while Army Chief Dalbir Singh Suhag was also caught in the massive vehicular congestion, following heavy rains in the national capital.

Kerry was caught in the traffic snarls when he was heading towards IIT in south Delhi for participating in an event, while Suhag got late for an army event due to the jam.

The US Secretary of State had a similar experience Monday evening while travelling to his hotel room at Chanakyapuri from the IGI airport.

He had to also cancel his visit to religious sites today as heavy rains lashed the national capital since morning.

Kerry was scheduled to visit the Gauri Shankar temple, the Jama Masjid and the Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib in the old Delhi area.

Meanwhile, Army Chief Dalbir Singh was also caught in traffic jam. He was to reach the India Habitat Centre for an army event, but couldn't make it in time because of the traffic congestion.

Several parts of the Lutyens' Zone, a VVIP area, witnessed a serpentine queue of vehicles.
