After the innumerable coronations and cremation queues due to Corona, there are reports of floating dead bodies in the Yamuna. In Hamirpur on Friday, dozens of bodies were found floating in the Yamuna river.

Hamirpur police station reached the spot to know the reality behind these dead bodies. It was found that after these people died in the rural areas of Kanpur and Hamirpur districts, the dead bodies were being carried by the villagers to the Yamuna itself.

What do the police claim?

In this regard, Hamirpur Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Anup Kumar Singh has said that when his in-charge arrived on the spot, he found that two dead bodies were brought in the tractor and then they were flown into Yamuna.

According to the police, they found many more bodies flowing in the river. Earlier this week, seven bodies were also spotted floating.

When the bodies were seen descending near the Yamuna river bridge at the district headquarters, there was panic among the people. Three bodies were on the border of the Sajeti police station in Kanpur, while four were found in Hamirpur.

Some people were on the Yamuna Bridge when they were seen landing the dead bodies a short distance away.

The ASP says that after the death, people perform the last rites in the Yamuna River. At times, the bodies also flow.

These bodies can only be among them. Further action will be taken in this regard.
