MIRZA, Sept 24 � At least 13 bodies of people missing since the last two days have been recovered today at various villages under Boko and Goroimari Revenue Circles in Kamrup district.
The bodies have been identified as that of Ahalya Kumari (Belpara village), Ananta Kumar (Belpara), Padma Kumar (Belpara), Mun Rabha (Chukunia), Mogebala Rabha (Khenapara), Surjya Bala Kalita (Chichapith), Parda Kalita (Chichapith), Midayan Das (Khaliha), Bitupan Rabha (Khaliha), Ganesh Chetry (Dakuapara), Meha Saha (Dakuapara), Monoranjan Rabha (Chichapith) under Boko Revenue Circle in Kamrup district.
Another youth, Saidur Rahman (16) of Goroimari Satra under Goroimari Revenue Circle in Kamrup district has died today after sliding into flood waters, and his body has also been recovered.
Ruling out further recovery of dead bodies, Kamrup SP Indrani Baruah told The Assam Tribune over telephone that those who were missing since the flood have been found and there is no possibility of recovery of any more bodies in the Boko area.
Meanwhile, the flood situation has improved today in South Kamrup as flood waters have been showing a receding trend but normal life in most of the affected areas continued to be disrupted.
The lack of electricity has hampered the rescue-and-relief operations and people in the relief camps in Boko and its adjoining areas are facing acute shortage of drinking water.
Sources said that movement of vehicles on NH-37, which has been submerged since the last two days, has resumed today. However, plying of vehicles through several PWD roads has remained disrupted as several bridges have been washed away by the flood and many roads are still under flood waters.
Sources said that plying of vehicles through the Chhayagon-Gumi PWD road, Kukurmara-Bartari PWD road, Boko-Bhalukghata road, Singra-Tarabari road, Kulsi-Chhaygaon road, Batarhat-Futuri PWD road, Goromari-Chhaygaion road, etc., has remained disrupted even today.
Although flood waters showed a receding trend, over 30 villages, such as Simina, Makadhuj, Futuri, Bartari, Jiakur, Kukurmara, Panikhaiti, Satpokhali, Rampur, Tejpur, etc., under Palasbari LAC are reeling under flood waters and over 40 villages, including Chhaygaon township, Dheenabori, Jarabari, Dhumgara, Gumi, Bhatipara, Balasidhi, etc., in Chhaygaon LAC are still inundated by the flood waters. Over 50 villages in Boko LAC are also under flood waters today.
Sources said that relief materials have not been given in the Futuri, Simina, Bartari, Jiakur, Satpokhali, Tejpur, Roumari, Jalamdani, Bejortari, Jiakur Reserve, etc., villages under Palasbari Revenue Circle, where people have been demanding relief materials as those villages are one of the worst affected villages.
