Prime Minister Narendra Modi Narendra Modi expressed anguish over the loss of lives in a boat tragedy in Andhra Pradesh and prayed for the safe return of those missing.

"This evening, a boat ferrying people capsized in Godavari River near Devipatnam here". Officials claimed that numerous tribals onboard jumped out of the sinking boat and swam ashore, while some are missing. The river is very narrow now and not very deep, so if the boat had a problem the boat driver can reach the river bank within five minutes.

Local media reports suggest that the passenger boat started from Devipatnam and was en route to Vadapalli.
