Raipur: A man stoned his three nephews, aged between three and eight, to death in a Chhattisgarh village as he wanted to settle scores with his two brothers over a land dispute, police said on Friday.
The man and his two accomplices were arrested Thursday in the poverty-hit village, Rajkheta, in Surguja district, over 350 km north of capital Raipur.
Jagmohan, 51, crushed to death his younger brother`s two sons - Gulab, 8, and Ramnarayan, 6, - and his youngest brother`s son Golu, 3, as he had a long-time land dispute with his two siblings, police said.

Police said the killings took place May 13 but the bodies were recovered and the accused arrested Thursday.
