They were headed to the scenic Papikondalu, or "Papi Hills" in the West Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh.

Rampachodavaram ASP, Ajitha Vijendla, who is supervising the rescue operations along with District SP and Collector said, "Rescue operations are still on, though we can't give exact number of the people who are missing /drowned".

The teams from the navy, state disaster management department and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel were engaged in the rescue operations with the help of Navy helicopters.

Today, divers were able to rescue some of the bodies after the motor launch was found struck in the sand at a depth of 60 feet near Varapalli tribal village.

Divers failed in trying to locate the boat on Tuesday night due to the bad weather and darkness. At least 40 people were onboard, including 20 members of a marriage party, reported the Hindustan Times.

The incident came close on the heels of a boat with over 100 tourists catching fire in Godavari River in the same district on May 11.

But boat accidents are also common in India for other reasons mainly overcrowding, poor maintenance and lax safety.

Proper record-keeping is rare on the many ferries that work the Godavari, making it hard to know how many people were on the boat.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his anguish over the incident on Twitter.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu directed the officials to launch rescue operations on war footing. Condolences to the bereaved families.

According to police, the boat sailed from Devipatnam to reach Kondamodalu at 3.30 pm on Tuesday. I pray that the injured recover soon.
