At least seven people were killed and thousands rendered homeless in the torrential rain-related incidents in the Assam, Tripura and Manipur. 

According to the state officials in Tripura, two persons were swept away by strong river currents while over 14,000 lost their homes as heavy downpour submerged parts of the state.
