New Delhi, Jan 14 (ANI): Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti on Wednesday said the ministry will probe the matter of unidentified bodies found around a bank of the River Ganges. Nearly 50 bodies were found in revered River Ganges in India's northern state of Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday. Dogs, crows and vultures dug into bodies as they had reached the bank due to low water level, posing major environment challenges in the areas under Unnao district. Bharti said she had received information on the unidentified bodies and would deploy officials from her own ministry on the spot, to send her a detailed report.
