At least 20 people died on Thursday when a boat packed with labourers capsized on the Yamuna river in northern India, an official said.
"The incident happened early morning. It was a privately hired boat and was carrying some 50-55 people," said Singh.
Angry residents protested on the streets in Baghpat, accusing the administration of not providing help to the victims quickly enough.
"They used dead bodies to block roads. Police are on the spot and a probe has been ordered," Prashant Kumar, a senior police official told AFP.
