Dead bodies have come from Uttar Pradesh – Vikas Kumar
Chausa’s development officer Ashok Kumar said that about 40-45 bodies had been found. They all flowed from different places and came to Mahadeva Ghat.
He said that these bodies are not from Uttar Pradesh but belong to Uttar Pradesh. After the death of the Corona-infected people, people would have shed them in the Ganges if there was no place to burn and bury them. He said that a watchman had been deployed in the area for the last rites of the Corona-infected people.
All bodies are five to seven days old – Upadhyay.

He said that there is no way to stop the dead bodies coming from Uttar Pradesh. In such a situation, preparations for disposal have been started in them.
He said that 500 rupees were being paid to those who took out the dead bodies from the river.
Dead bodies are being thrown in the Ganges due to a lack of wood.
Pawni resident Narendra Kumar Maurya said that the condition of Chausa Ghat is quite pathetic. 100 to 200 per cent of dead bodies are reached here due to corona infection.
