Mass grave

The increasing water level in Ganga and the advancement of monsoon in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj town have led to the mass graves float in Ganga, reviving the haunting images of floating dead bodies in the river. The mass graves, suspected to be of Covid patients have been floating on the river bank as the water level has risen up crumbled the sandbanks.

The bodies have posed another challenge for the authorities who are working overtime to take out the dead bodies and cremate them. Local journalists have taken pictures and videos of the body floating on several Ganga ghat and the authorities have been fishing out the bodies for the last two days.

Niraj Kumar Singh, a zonal officer for the Prayagraj Municipal Corporation, told the media he had cremated 40 bodies in the last 24 hours. We are creating all bodies individually and following all rituals, Singh said in an interview.

You can see that the person was ill, and the family dumped the person here and went away. Maybe they were scared, I cannot say, Singh said. Not all the bodies were decomposed. The condition of some indicated they were freshly buried, he added.

Prayagraj’s Mayor Abhilasha Gupta Nandi told the media that the state had a long tradition of burial by many communities. While bodies buried in the mud are dissolved the sandbanks tend to preserve them. Wherever we find exposed bodies because of the spate in the river, we are carrying out cremations, she said.

Meanwhile, Congress slammed the Yogi Adityanath government, saying front page newspaper ads congratulating the Yogi government for its covid management should be shown side by side with horrific images of bodies floating in the Ganga.

Almost 100 unidentified dead bodies were found floating in Ganga in May. 71 dead bodies were fished out in Bihar’s Buxar district, almost 25 dead bodies belonged to Uttar Pradesh’s Ghazipur district. Just days after dead bodies of suspected Covid-19 patients were seen floating on the banks of River Ganga in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, fresh reports of multiple bodies buried under the sand emerged from UP’s Unnao district.

The visuals generated immense outrage. It was suspected that the deaths were due to Covid, and the fatalities were being under-reported by the state. However, the Uttar Pradesh government denied that the deaths were linked to the pandemic and claimed that burial by the river is a long-standing tradition.

The Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is being pushed towards a slow death inside Tihar jail as he is being denied insulin and consultations with his doctor.  AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj told the media that Arvind Kejriwal, who is suffering from Type-2 diabetes, has been asking for insulin and a video conferencing with his family doctor as the jail administration is not allowing him to do so.

Bharadwaj said he wants to say with full responsibility that a conspiracy is underway for the slow death of Kejriwal. He said his claims were on the basis of blood sugar readings of the Delhi Chief Minister in jail. He also slammed the Tihar administration, BJP, Centre and Delhi LG and held them responsible for denying insulin to Kejriwal and said the Delhi Chief Minister has been suffering from Type-2 diabetes for the last 20-22 years.

On Friday, the Delhi chief minister’s council Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Kejriwal has not been administered insulin to control his sugar levels since his arrest, and termed it alarming and shocking. The Enforcement Directorate had on Thursday claimed before the court that Kejriwal has been taking high sugar intake by consuming foods like mangoes and sweets every day, inspite of the fact that he was suffering from Type-2 diabetes, to create grounds for medical bail.

Kejriwal refuted the claims of the Enforcement Directorate by asserting before a court that the food he consumed was in accordance with the diet chart prepared by his doctor. Arvind Kejriwal confirmed that he only uses sugar free in his tea.

Bharadwaj further added that overall, it was a conspiracy to give a slow death to Arvind  Kejriwal so that his multiple organs get damaged and when he comes out of jail after 2-4 months he goes for the treatment of heart, kidney and other organs.
