"Some 14 bodies have been fished out of the waters", he said. Officials said 41 passengers, including 31 members of Ongole Wakers Club, were on the boat when it overturned.

"According to preliminary investigation, the private agency which was operating the boat did not have a license from the tourism department", he added. In a separate incident, at least six people had drowned in river Ganga in Bihar's Maranchi. Swimmers and local fishermen rescued 15 passengers as the boat capsized.

He straight away rammed his speeding boat into the silt and capsized the vehicle where few members fell outside and several got stuck under the boat and the silt, thus rendering life jackets useless. A survivor in the incident also alleged that the boat operator was trying for ferry more passengers and that it was overloaded.
