At least 16 people died and others were feared drowned after a tourist boat packed with 35-40 passengers capsized into river Krishna at the Pavithra Sangamam ghat near Vijayawada on Sunday evening. Officials said 41 passengers, including 31 members of Ongole Wakers Club, were present in the boat when it overturned. According to an eyewitness, most of the tourists were standing on the right side, which resulted in the boat tilting.
Home Minister N. Chinnarajappa, who rushed to the site, said 16 bodies had been recovered while the search was on for the missing.
Survivors said they boarded the private boat as the boats of the Tourism Department were not available.
The incident occurred when the boat set off for Pavitra Sangamam at Ferry village near Vijayawada from Bhavani Island, the police said.
