The number of dead bodies found along the banks of the Ganges in Buxar, Bihar, had not yet been completed, that in Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh, 52 bodies were found just 800 meters away at the Ganges Ghat. Within two days, around 110 dead bodies have been recovered. Meanwhile, in Ballia, more than 12 corpses have been found along the Ganges.
It is now being feared that the dead bodies found in Buxar have also been washed away from UP itself. This is because the Ganges passes through Ghazipur and Ballia to Buxar. Locals say that since last night, the administration has buried 80 to 85 dead bodies along the Ganges. However, the administration is stating their number 24.
