The cutting of the Ganges at Phaphamau Ghat is increasingly becoming a disaster for the city administration. On Wednesday, 23 bodies came out of the sand that fell under the JD of Katan. As the bank sank, some of the bodies flowing in the Ganges were filtered out. These uncollected corpses were cremated with pyres within a radius of about two hundred meters. With that, the number of corpses emerging from the wet sands of Phaphamau Ghat has risen to 70. By continuously releasing corpses from the sand for a month, the deaths in the Corona period and the needs of the people who fought for the last rites of the corpses can be measured.

On the night of Tuesday, the stream intensified due to the rise in the water level and the cut area also began to increase. In such a situation, the corpses buried in the sand come out one by one at every step. From 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, the process of seeing bodies from the sand began. By noon the sand was cut on this ghat and the bodies kept coming out. With the harvest, a woman’s corpse began to flow in the Ganges. Despite the rapid flow, with the swiftness of the workers and workers of the corporation, the body was prevented from flowing into the Ganges and it was filtered out.

By evening, a total of 23 bodies had been pulled out of the sand with the help of workers. This is the largest number of bodies ever recovered from the sand. Neeraj Kumar Singh, the zone officer of the Municipal Corporation, had been standing at the ghat himself since that morning. They also had the bodies removed and then the pyre was decorated by asking for wood, ramnami, and other items. Then these bodies were cremated. On that day the corpses were again cremated with rituals, Shradh, so that these wandering souls could find peace. However, there were many such bodies whose body parts had been dismantled. There was a foul odor from these corpses. There is also a risk of transmission of infection through such corpses.

Zonal officer has so far set 82 bodies on fire

Neeraj Kumar Singh, the Zone Official of the Municipal Corporation, is performing the final rites on the uncollected bodies found in Phaphamau Ghat. He also set fire to all corpses on Wednesday. His eyes filled with tears on Wednesday, telling the pain of burning 23 bodies in one day. So far, he has set fire to 82 corpses in this ghat. Previously, during the corona infection, he had burned 12 such corpses that had no heirs. Now every day he performs the last rites of the corpses that come out of the sand.
