These bodies are piled up on the banks of river Ganga.
People on the banks of river Ganga wake up every morning to the horrible as well as heart felting sight. The local government authorities believe the bodies found floating are belong to Covid patients whose relatives may have been failed to find space to cremate their dear ones. Hence, the river bed.
