the body is positively charged before grounding and after that electrons flows from earth to body and body becomes neutral.

the Body is positively charged before grounding because If a body is grounded and electrons starts flowing into the body from then Earth this would mean that the charges inside the body are attracting the negative electrons from Earth as a potential difference is being developed at the two ends, the Earth and the body.

When a body is connected to earth.Its potential is 0. That doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be uncharged.
