The rising water level of the Ganga and Varuna rivers submerged parts of Varanasi including its famous ghats, forcing the cremation of bodies brought to the Harishchandra and Manikarnika ghats in nearby streets and on terraces. The water level of Ganga, however, is decreasing now.
Till 4 PM today, the river was at a receding trend and flowing at 71.82 metres.
The water level of the Ganga in Varanasi district crossed the danger mark on Saturday, affecting 28,499 people in 115 villages.
