Located 20 km from Vijayawada, Ibrahimpatnam is known for the Pavithra Sangamam, which is where the Godavari and Krishna rivers meet.
Reports say that 14 bodies have been recovered so far.
The boat overturned at Ibrahimpatnam Ferry Ghat around 5.20 p.m.
The private boat was travelling from Bhavani Island to Pavitra Sangamam at the time of the incident. We are in the process of identifying the victims.
Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has expressed shock over the accident and directed Director General Police Sambasiva Rao to rush to the scene and supervise rescue operations. He announced Rs 8 lakh compensation each to the families of the deceased.
A total of 15 people were rescued with the help of locals.
While six picnickers died after falling into the Ganga river in Vaishali, three women drowned in the Baghmati River when a boat capsized in Samastipur district, the officials had said. However, locals allege that many boats do not have sufficient number of life jackets and carry more passengers than their sanctioned capacity.
The tourism department of Andhra Pradesh had given permission for private agencies to operate boats to Bhavani Island regularly.
National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams and Krishna district authorities have launched a massive search and rescue operation to trace the missing people.
Tourism Minister Akhila Priya ordered probe into the incident.
