Bhubaneswar: After 12 people lost their lives in a boat tragedy in Odisha, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will visit Sambalpur on Monday to meet families of the victims.

On Sunday evening, a boat carrying people on a picnic, capsized in the Hirakud dam reservoir in Sambhalpur. Even as 12 bodies were recovered, 10 people continue to be missing.

Rescue operations are still underway. Reports suggest that the boat was carrying around 100 people and was overcrowded leading to the mishap.

According to an eyewitness, the boat developed a crack in the middle of the journey due to overcrowding, and water seeped in causing the motor to fail.

Rahul is on a two-day visit to Odisha. He had addressed a public rally in Salepur on Sunday. He is scheduled to reach Sambalpur by 12 noon.
