According to the CWC report, five bodies were recovered from the Barak valley’s Cachar district alone. Four bodies were recovered from the Cachar district’s Silchar town while another was recovered from the district’s Udharbond area on Monday. Three more bodies were recovered, one each from the Kamrup metro, Morigaon and Nagaon districts. Notably, the report highlighted that a resident of Silchar was found missing till Monday.

However, the report indicated a slight improvement in the overall flood situation as the numbers of affected districts were reduced to 22 on Monday. The disturbing fact in the matter is that the river Kopili at Dharamtul is still flowing above danger level.
