A local resident told the ANI news agency that he had been painting when he suddenly became aware of stray dogs gnawing and feeding on some half-burnt bodies washed up on the river bank.
He called the scenes that he had witnessed the “death of humanity” and demanded that local authorities do something about it.
Residents are fearful that the dead bodies may contaminate water supplies and spread more disease among the community.
Municipality president Ramesh Semwal said that he had assigned a person at the nearby Hindu temple Kedar Ghat to cremate the body remains.
He said: “During the last few days, the number of deaths has increased in our area.
In recent days, though, there have been tentative signs that the worst may be over.
Experts believe that the second wave is starting to wane at a national level.
However, several states have yet to see infection rates and deaths peak and continue to struggle.
