A plea has been filed before the Supreme Court seeking its intervention into the incidence where about 100 corpses of persons who are suspected to have died of COVID were found floating in the river Ganga in Bihar and UP.


The plea has sought direction for constitution of special investigating agency to supervise investigation of death of 100 of human being whose dead bodies have been found floating in the river Ganga in Buxar of Bihar and Ghazipur District in State of Uttar Pradesh, and Unnao U.P.

The plea has sought the formation of Special Investigating Agency by the top court which may be headed by a sitting /Retired Judge of this Hon'ble Court to overlook upon the investigation.

The PIL has stated that 71 bodies have been fished out at Mahadev Ghat, Chausa, Distict Buxar, Bihar over and above that to the information of the petitioner more than 30 bodies were found in District Ghazipur, U.P.

Therefore, the top Court's intervention has been sought to inquire and investigate the suspicious death of hundreds of poor citizens whose dead bodies are flushed out into the river Ganga inhumanly and no FIR has been registered by the Authorities.

The petitioner has contended that, no FIRs have been registered by the authorities, no Post Mortem was conducted and dead bodies were burried by Administration /Police Authorities by preparing verbatim false Post Mortem reports for purpose of eye wash and to show that investigation was been conducted.

The plea filed by Advocate Sanjeev Malhotra and drawn by Adv Ashutosh Yadav, has requested that each dead bodies be removed and proper post Mortem be conducted in order to verify the cause of the death.

"It is clear and apparent that the person whose dead bodies floated has not died their natural death. The Administration in order to hide /save their face from the responsibility of such inhuman act has prepared false verbatim Post mortem without actually doing the Post Mortem of dead bodies. The petitioner makes this statement very responsibly and on personal information received to the petitioner from reliable sources." the plea reads.
