At least 20 people on board the launch swam ashore, officials said.

Eight people drowned after their boat capsized late Sunday during a storm in northern Uttar Pradesh state.

Ferry disasters occur frequently in India, often because of overcrowded boats or poor maintenance. "Anguished by the capsizing of a boat in Andhra Pradesh's East Godavari district".

The cause of the Tuesday accident was not clear.

The victims included members of a wedding party and people from local tribal communities, who regularly use the boats to reach their villages across India's second largest river that flows from the west of the country to the east coast.

Describing the deaths as nothing but government killings, Pawan said it was unfortunate that the government was least bothered about lack of permissions and checking fitness of the boats to operate in the river. The boat was reportedly carrying around 50 people.

The boat belongs to Laxmi Venkateshwara boat services and the owner Khaja Mohinuddeen has surrendered at the Devipatnam police station following the incident.

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu directed the officials to undertake rescue operations on a war footing.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed sadness over the incident. Condolences to the bereaved families. Divers went down to the bottom of the river bed and tied ropes to the capsized boat while the personnel on the shore pulled the ropes, with their bare hands, and recovered some trapped bodies inside. "I pray for the safety of those missing", he tweeted.

Divers failed in trying to locate the boat on Tuesday night due to the bad weather and darkness.
