Jaipur: Six members of a family, including four children, were hacked to death allegedly by two men over a personal feud in Bhilwara district of Rajasthan.
35-year-old Yunus and his wife Sania (32) were found brutally murdered near a small bridge on National Highway in Mandal area of Bhilwara yesterday, a senior police official said.
The bodies of their four children-- Ahsraf (10), Gudiya (5), Ashima (3) and one-year-old Sakeena-- were found this morning from Rayala area, 40 km from Bhilwara, said Superintendent of Police of Bhilwara, Hemant Kumar Sharma.
Two persons-- Sharaft and Raju Khateek-- have been arrested by the police and booked for the murders.
Police said that they have confessed to the crime.
"Old enmity and illicit relation is said to be the reason behind the murders of the six people of the family which lived in Nimbahera area of Chittorgarh district," the SP said.
Quoting the accused's statement, the SP said they had lured the entire family to visit Ajmer Dargah on July 27.
"On way from Nimbahera, they stopped their SUV near a bridge in Mandal area and killed Yunus and his wife Sania with a sword in the cover of darkness," as per the accused statement.
They covered up their bodies with sand and bushes, the SP said.
Later, they drove the kids to Rayala, 40 kms away from Bhilwara and near a pond they allegedly murdered the four children with the same sword, the SP said.
The identity of Yunus was established from the tag of his shirt, on which tailer's address was written, the police officer said.
