Violence flared on Saturday in Bihar when police tried to move hungry, homeless people away from an elevated train track to be able to dig a ditch and drain floodwaters from a nearby village.
In Bangladesh, at least 16 people, including six children, drowned overnight taking the country’s death toll to at least 81, an official at the government’s flood monitoring agency has said.
Parts of Dhaka are under water and more areas might flood in the next few days.
In Nepal, the UN has said that rains over the last few weeks had triggered floods and landslides in both the west and east that have killed 84 and displaced 270,000 people.
The Nepalese army and rafting companies – used to taking tourists – have joined rescue operations.
