New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday demanded a judicial probe headed by a high court judge into bodies floating in the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh and said what is happening is inhuman and criminal.

"What is happening in Uttar Pradesh is inhuman and criminal. The government is busy image building while people are suffering unimaginably."

Her remarks came amid reports of bodies floating in the Ganga in Uttar Pradesh's Ballia and other places, as well as in Bihar.

"Bodies are floating in the ganga in Ballia and Ghazipur. Reports are coming in of mass burials on the banks of the river in Unnao. Official numbers from cities like Lucknow, Gorakhpur, Jhansi and Kanpur appear to be grossly under-reported," the Congress general secretary said in another tweet.
