In Madhya Pradesh, torrential rains have lashed western parts disrupting normal life. The Ganga had crossed the danger mark in West Bengal, Bihar and neighbouring districts of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday where Yamuna river is also in spate, while heavy rainfall has created a flood-like situation in some parts of Rajasthan where six persons have died so far.
