The Brahmaputra River, which flows through Tibet, India and Bangladesh, burst its banks in Assam late in June and continues to wreak havoc in India’s north-eastern state. Around 85 people have died in the state in flood-related incidents so far and more than 33 lakh people across 28 districts of the state are affected by the deluge.

The floods also swamped most of Kaziranga National Park, home to rare one-horned rhinos.
