22 drown as boat capsizes; CM announces Rs 2 lakh relief
 
(Baghpat (UP), Sep 14, 2017): At least 22 people drowned and many others were missing after an overloaded boat capsized in the Yamuna River here today.

The boat was carrying 60 people, District Magistrate Bhawani Singh said.

The boat sank close to Katha village, 20 km from the district headquarters.

Police and PAC personnel have fished out 22 bodies so far while 10 others have been rescued, he said. A search was on to trace others.

"The boat was ferrying passengers more than its capacity.

Most of the passengers of the ill-fated boat were women. As soon as the boat reached mid-stream it capsized," the district magistrate said.

He said a probe has been ordered into the incident.
