30 bodies floating in Ganga trigger Covid panic in Buxar
PATNA/BUXAR: Residents of Chausa village in Buxar woke up to a macabre sight of dead bodies of suspected Covid patients floating in the Ganga near Mahadeva Ghat on Monday.
"The bodies are of people infected with Covid-19. Since morning, I have seen more than 30-35 bodies myself. Some people immersed the bodies in the river, while others disposed of half-burnt bodies in the water," a man covering his face with a piece of cloth told reporters at Chausa's Mahadev Ghat on Monday.
Some locals attributed the dum of bodies in the river to the high cost of organizing cremations as more money is being charged for Covid deaths.
Another local, who refused to be identified, said resi nts of villages along the river bank are scared about getting infected. "The situation is dangerous. More than 150 infected bodies are floating in the river. People of areas like Katgharwa, Kamharia and Chausa, among others, are in shock and fear. They are fened to even come for funerals at this ghat," he said.
Buxar DM Aman Samir said in a press statement that an investigation has found about 30 dead bodies in the Ganga that were three to four days old and were not from Buxar district.
伯格萨尔DM Aman Samir在一份新闻声明中表示，调查在恒河中发现了大约30具尸体，这些尸体已有三到四天，并非来自伯格萨尔地区。
"The villagers told the investigation team comprising Buxar SDPO and SDO that the bodies are not local and have floated down from elsewhere in a day or two. It is clear that the bodies have come floating in the river from the neighbouring state," the DM said, adding, instructions have been issued to intensify river patrolling.

complete failure . 0% marks out of 100. Accept mistake modiji and handover charges to some one else
When will Modi realise that he is incompetent to handle and resign to let someone else to handle the situation.
Total col pse of go nment machinery...
locals cm 150 bodies and admin says 30 ..they are even fooling us with wrong data..
What a Chaos in our country , Thanks to Feku! Cases came down in march, Feku was chest pum and taking credit for cases down and declaring and boasting that India is pharmacy of the world. Now cases are going up , Feku cant hide anywhere. Every life is precious and people to die this way is heart wrenching
Seems like country is turned in to graveyard. The value of life in India is no better than farm chickens.
BJP wpuld have said that these bodies are murdered by TMC goons and HM would have started investigation. Bihar villagers somehow saw this and spoiled the plan.
Poor people don't have money to create their loved ones and unfortunately there will be more of this,.
Acche din? When even the dead cannot get their due respect...not to mention the live.
Why can't they bury their dead ones like we do, atleast there will be some dignity in death.
because India is not Arab
Okay so this is how Covid death toll is kept low..... just throw the bodies away?
I remember UP chief minister Yogi cming Ker Go nment failed to curb Covid, during an ion rally. Forget covid he doesn't know to handle even the dead
remember, no one lives forever and you may end up in a gutter yourselves
We need British Raj back.
It wasn't that long ago when it was fashionable to talk about India as an emerging super power. Now, in the span of only about a year, it seems India has found its ful place where it ly belongs; firmly back in the ranks of a primitive, third-world country, full of millions and millions of ignorant, backward thinking masses who still believe taking a dip in some dirty river water will secure them a place in some imaginary heaven.
The easiest way to under-report covid deaths.
shsme on the govts. shame. shame. shame
