Purulia SP C Sudhakar said 42-year-old Arun Mahato, his wife Lakshmi mahato and two-year-old son were killed in front of their parents.

The aged parents were so traumatised by the brutal killing that they lost their voice and were admitted to a hospital nearby for treatment.

Meanwhile, the police suspects that contract killers had been hired for the job and family dispute was the reason for the murders.
