As per the official, the change in colour or the mud in the water is unnatural as there has been no rain in the recent past.

The authorities are now monitoring the situation but the primary reason has been termed to be some construction activities on the Chinese part of the river.

In China, the river is called Yarlung Tsangpo and it is suspected that there might be earth-cutting over it which has turned out to be a major concern now.

Another cause may be landslides in Upper Stream but nothing can be said till a proper investigation is done.
