The director general of the National Disaster Response Force said Sunday that two boats had capsized in Bihar.
RK Prachanda said that after the first boat capsized, people began to jump on to another. Because of the resulting overloading, the second boat also capsized.
"21 bodies have been recovered so far, search and rescue operation is underway. 3 NDRF teams are at the spot. We are trying our best. We have deported three teams for the operation. It is extremely tragic incident. People were taking boats one after another. When the people realised that their boat was capsizing they tried to jump to the other boat then both the boats capsized due to over load," ANI reported him as saying.
