41 dead in Bihar, situation grim in Assam, Bengal & Arunachal; crucial rail link to northeast snapped
Heavy rain in the last three days triggered flash floods in parts of Bihar, where 41 people have died so far, and inundated large areas in Assam and North Bengal, paralysing normal life and snapping rail link to the Northeast from the rest of the country.
In Arunachal Pradesh too, the flood situation continued to be grim in several districts with recurring landslips disrupting road traffic.
Assam, floods claimed three more lives, taking the toll this season to 102.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who conducted an aerial survey of flood-hit areas, told reporters that Araria was the worst-affected district. Flood waters have engulfed areas in Kisanganj, three blocks of Purnea and one block of Katihar damaging roads.
Mr. Kumar said heavy rain in Nepal and Bihar in the last three days had led to this situation and the State government was carrying out relief work on a war footing.
Trains cancelled
The Railway Board has cancelled all incoming trains from various parts of the country towards the northeast region till 10 a.m. of August 16, a top official said. Tracks have been inundated at various places.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said: “We are concerned about the flood situation and are monitoring it round the clock.” State government sources said Phulahar river had crossed its danger level, while 20 villages, mostly under Harischandrapur block-II and Ratua block in Malda district were inundated.
Rhinos in distress
With the Kaziranga National Park (KNP) and the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam getting submerged, rhinos and other animals have taken shelter on the highlands. Hence patrolling has been intensified as poachers could take advantage of the situation, a KNP official said.

What a planning by the British while partitioning India.
North Bengal & North East India were cut off from Mainland. Lack of Alternate Rly lines from Malda 2 SGUJ that time proved trouble some for IR. Today even after 70 years of independence, lack of alternale Rly lines to North Bengal & NE India is proving trouble some for IR. Wah re wah.
