Rajappa also announced an ex gratia of Rs 8 lakh to each of the families of the deceased. As many as 20 passengers wearing life jackets were brought ashore with the help of trained swimmers and local fishermen. 32 of the victims belong to Ongole town.
The National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) are undertaking search and rescue operations. "As it was nearing the ferry point, it came to a sudden halt as a result of which passengers fell towards one side of the boat and it overturned within seconds", a survivor told the local media persons.
Ferry staff stated that it was the first time that the boat belonging to a two-month old company called "River Boating" was coming to the area from Bhavani Island and the driver did not know about the silt existing in that part of the river.
The boat exceeded its maximum carrying capacity of 24.
The rescue operations were underway and senior officials rushed to the spot.
