Dhaka: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh
Hasina on Wednesday mourned the deaths of over 100 people in eastern
India in a violent tropical storm that partly devastated parts
of this country`s northwestern region.
A storm packing speeds of over 125 km per hour swept
across West Bengal, Bihar and Assam early today killing at
least 110 people and leaving a trail of destruction.
In a message sent to her Indian counterpart Manmohan
Singh, the Premier expressed her deep shock at the loss of
lives and property and prayed for the eternal peace of the
departed souls.

Praying for the early recovery of the injured people,
Sheikh Hasina also hoped India would soon overcome the losses
caused by the storm.
