Patna: The Bihar government said on Tuesday that a total of three bodies had so far been exhumed from the Ganges in Buxar district, adding that the coronavirus suspected patients were being carried into the Ganges river for possible funerals, fearing the possibility of a reign. On Tuesday, Water Resources Minister Sanjay Kumar Jha referred to the search for the bodies in the Ganges River near Chaisa village in Buxar district, saying the 4-5-day-old mutilated bodies had flown from a neighboring country to the state of Bihar in Uttar Pradesh.
He said that he was always concerned about the cleanliness and uninterrupted flow of the river Ganges as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was suffering due to the huge number of bodies recovered and their flow in the river and asked the district administration to increase patrols on the river banks so that it does not happen again. “A trap has been set in the Ganges at Ranighat on the border of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
