Rourkela: Mystery shrouded death of a woman and her four children, whose bodies were found from a well at Indupur village under Koida Police limits in Sundergarh district today.
It is suspected that some miscreants might have killed the woman and her kids when her husband was away and later dumped the bodies in a well adjacent to the house late last night.
Sources said one Kuni Munda of Bada Indipur village had first married to one Tagur Munda and the couple had four children, all aged below 10 years. When Tagur died around a year ago, Kuni got married to one Sidia Munda of the same village. Last night, some unidentified miscreants killed Kuni and her four kids when her husband was away. Later, the miscreants dragged the bodies from the house and dumped the same in a well adjacent to the house.
When the woman’s husband reached the house late in the morning, he found blood stains on the floors and the bodies inside the well after that, sources added.
On receiving information, police along with a scientific team rushed to the spot and began an investigation into the incident.
