"Its heartbreaking": Farhan expresses grief over bodies washing up on the banks of Ganga

On Tuesday, 100 bodies were found floating in in the Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, according to media reports. That came after similar sightings in the state of Bihar, in the village Chausa, where bodies of over 40 people were pulled out from the river on Monday. Another official reportedly said that the bodies were bloated and have been in water for more than four to five days. The matter will be investigated, the official informed. There is panic among locals as they fear the infection might spread into the river

Now reacting on the latest piece of controversy, filmmaker and actor, Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter expressed his dismay on the issue. The Toofan actor wrote, "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."  The second wave of the COVID-19 has wrecked havoc in India, with deaths rising significantly in recent weeks. Most of the country's crematoriums are running out  of spaces. The country is now the epicentre of the global pandemic. India has recorded more than 22.6 million coronavirus cases and 246,116 Covid-related deaths since the start of the pandemic, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
