DOOMDOOMA, May 12 - Following incessant rainfall in Assam and neighbouring Arunachal Pradesh since the last one week, the water level of Kundil river has been maintaining a rising trend.
However, no village has been inundated thus far.
Talking to this Correspondent, the Sub-Divisional Officer (Civil) of Sadiya, Biswajit Phukan informed that the bamboo bridge over the river at Tupsinga was washed away by strong currents on Thursday night.
