Six people drowned in Ulipur and Roumari upazilas on Tuesday as the Brahmaputra and Dharla rivers continue to flow above the danger level, leaving thousands of people stranded.

According to the district control room, worsening floods and river erosion affected about 4,00,000 people until Tuesday.

The Brahmmaputra and Dharla rivers were flowing 125cm and 117cm above the danger level respectively at Chilmari and Bridge points.
