Thu 13 May 2021:
Just days after bodies were found floating in the river Ganga in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, similar sightings are now being reported in UP’s Unnao district.
Several bodies were reportedly seen buried in the sand near the river bank in Unnao’s Buksar village. The bodies were found to be in various stages of decay, some even mauled by stray dogs.
The Unnao district administration has ordered a probe after some bodies were found buried on the Ganga riverbank in Bighapur Patan tehsil area, officials said on Thursday.
The district administration swung into action after locals spotted bodies buried on Baksar ghat of the river. Some photographs of the bodies were seen on social media, they said.
“After the matter came to the light, a sub-divisional magistrate was sent to the spot for the probe. He will submit his report,” Unnao district magistrate Ravindra Kumar said.

He said Baksar ghat is on the border of many districts including Raebareli, Fatehpur and Unnao and people go there for cremation.
“We will take appropriate action after seeing the situation. Directives have been issued that such a situation does not arise,” the district magistrate.
On the exact number of bodies buried on the riverbank, the sub-divisional magistrate said he was not aware of the number.
People living near the riverbank on Thursday said no burial was allowed and all the bodies being brought to the ghat are being cremated.
