Lucknow: Sensation prevailed in Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur district after dozens of bodies were seen floating on the river Yamuna on Sunday. Speculations were rife as the bodies belonged to ones who died of coronavirus.
Some are even saying that the sheer number of Covid-19 casualties in villages in Hamirpur is such that bodies of the victims are being floated on the river as cremation grounds are overwhelmed with numbers.
In one particular village, locals have been cremating bodies in fields along the banks of river Yamuna. Neither district officials, nor the state government has any records of the number of deaths that have gone unreported in these parts of Uttar Pradesh.
