Mandla, MP, (UNI)

Shockwaves went across the otherwise-nondescript Maneri village as news spread of six members of a family being savagely butchered and five severely injured within their dwelling by sword-wielding relatives on Wednesday on account of a festering land dispute. 


While the two perpetrators of the sextuple homicide were fleeing, a mob beat one of them to death. 


Furnishing details of the horrifying sequence of events, Inspector General (Balaghat Range) V Rao said, “Harish and Santosh Soni – both under the influence of liquor – targeted the nearby abode of Rajjan Soni murdering him, Vinod Soni (40), his son Om (9), daughter Priyanka, Ranu (18) and Deepak Soni.”
