Odisha boat capsize: 5 more bodies recovered raising death toll to 7

Bhubaneswar: Five more bodies were found on Saturday, bringing the total number of fatalities from the boat capsize in the Jharsuguda district of Odisha to seven, according to an official.

Five more dead were found in the Mahanadi River by members of the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force and Fire Services, who initiated a search operation as soon as the boat overturned on Friday, he added.

"Five more bodies were recovered from the Hirakud reservoir of the river," the official said.

All deceased persons hailed from the Kharseni area of neighbouring Chhattisgarh.

The incident occurred when around 50 passengers hailing from the neighbouring state returned in the boat after visiting a temple in Patharseni Kuda in Odisha's Bargarh district.

The boat capsized as it was about to reach Sarada Ghat in Rengali police station in Jharsuguda district, a police officer said.
