Both rivers are still below the danger point, but Water Development Board Executive Engineer Md Shafiqul Islam said the water will continue to rise for the next two days in these two

The water levels of the Dharla and Teesta rivers have been since Saturday night with the increased flow from upstream.

According to the Water Development Board control room, within between 6pm Saturday and 6am Sunday, Dharla River's flow rose by 18 centimetres at the Setu Point, and Teesta's flow increased by 14cm at Kaunia Point.

Both rivers are still below the danger point, but Water Development Board Executive Engineer Md Shafiqul Islam said the water will continue to rise for the next two days in these two as well as the Dudhkumar River.

Meanwhile, the water flow has dropped in the Brahmaputra River.

This correspondent spoke to several public representatives in the Dharla and Teesta delta, who said water had not reached any habitation in the region. However, heavy rain since Sunday morning was causing alarm among people.

Engineer Shafiqul Islam said heavy rain on the Indian side was sending water down the Teesta, the Dharla and the Dudhkumar and this was likely to continue for the next 48 hours.

Shafiqul said the waters had not yet reached the danger level, and they were likely to drop again after 48 hours unless there is more heavy rain.

He said in response to a question that the dams and embankments damaged by last year's flood had been repaired and were risk-free now.
