MaroonedThe ongoing flood in the country, caused by heavy rainfall and on-rush of water from India, has submerged croplands and marooned several lakh people in Kurigram, Lalmonirhat, Bogra, Gaibandha and some other northern districts. During a visit, a team from New Age found people, who lost their homes to the flood, moving haplessly to higher grounds with their belongings and cattle. Besides the houses, schools and flood disaster shelters built by the government were also found to have been severely affected.
