Rescue officials said around 2,000 villages have been hit by overflowing waters from the rain-swollen Brahmaputra river.


Himanta Biswa Sarmah, the health minister of Assam state, said AFP that a “maximum health alert” has been sounded in the devastated zone.


The victims have moved to temporary shelters on higher grounds in Assam where flood waters have also swamped wide swathes of farmland, other officials said. (AFP)
