‘Witch hunters’ kill mother and four children in India

Indian police have arrested six people in connection with the killing of a mother and her four children after being accused of being witches.

The bodies of Mangri Munda and her children were found in a well near their home in the eastern state of Orissa on 26 January.

Police are looking for more suspects they believe to have been involved in the crime.

A senior police officer told the BBC that the main accused, who has been arrested, claimed to be a "witch doctor".

He had accused Ms Munda and her children, who lived in a tribal settlement in Sundergarh district, of "casting spells" on another family in the village.
