Flood water has entered over 100 villages in Bihar, forcing people to abandon their homes, and rising water level in most rivers is posing a threat to many other villages, officials said Friday.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar ordered an inquiry into the killing of six people when police opened fire to control a mob in a village in Bagha district a day ago.
A Bihar homeguard was dismissed and
two policemen, including a station house officer were suspended after a woman was allegedly raped inside a police station in West Champaran district of the state.
