Ambulance staff filmed 'throwing COVID corpses' into Ganges River

Dozens more bodies have washed up on the banks of the Ganges river, as footage emerged appearing to show ambulance staff tossing coronavirus victims into the sacred waters.


Crematoriums in COVID-ravaged India are struggling to keep pace with a spiralling death toll of almost 250,000.
In recent days, scores of dead bodies of suspected coronavirus victims have been pulled from the Ganges River banks in eastern India.
Local authorities are investigating and a postmortem of the bodies has been carried out, but "due to heavy decomposition, we were unable to determine the cause of death," officials in the Bixar district of Bihar state said in a statement today.
An MP from India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, Janardhan Singh Sigriwal, has claimed bodies of COVID dead are being thrown into the river by ambulance staff in Bihar.
