Pooja Bhatt Reacts to reports of bodies floating in Ganga

On Monday, around 40 dead bodies were found on the banks of the Ganga in Buxar district, and the district administration claimed the bodies were from the upstream districts of Ghazipur, Varanasi, or Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh.

After Bihar’s Buxar, around two dozen bodies were found on the banks of the Ganga at abutting Ghazipur district of Uttar Pradesh, some of which have been partly cremated and then tossed into the river.

With more and more dead bodies being found floating in the Ganga amid the ongoing second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, several Bollywood celebrities took to social media to express their shock and criticize the horrific incidents.

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar tweeted, “The news of scores of bodies being discovered floating in rivers and washed up on its banks is absolutely heartbreaking. The virus will be defeated someday, but there has to be accountability for these failures in the system. Until then, the pandemic chapter is not closed!”

Actor-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt wrote, “You can fudge the data.. how do you hide the bodies? This will haunt us for generations to come.” Reacting to a news piece talking about the same, actor-comedian Jaaved Jaaferi commented, “This is tragic and horrific.”

Earlier, Bollywood celebrities like Urmila Matondkar, Shekhar Suman, and Divyenndu Sharma had also reacted to the shocking development.
