BHOPAL: Two incidents, including gruesome murder of four members of a tribal family shocked the Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday.
A young daily wage employee engaged in night vigil was found hanging to death inside the world famous Khajuraho temple campus of Chhatarpur district in the morning.
The youngster identified as Amit Shukla (22) was working as a daily wage employee for the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). He was found hanging to death from a tree in the western campus of temples in the morning.
"The ASI official Ashok Mehta informed us about the incident after which a police team rushed to the spot and seized the body for autopsy. Prima facie it seems a case of suicide, but we're awaiting the autopsy report," said Khajuraho police station in charge KG Shukla.
In the adjoining Sagar district, meanwhile, four male members of a tribal family were hacked to death by unidentified assailants, who also critically attacked four other members of the same family.
According to Naryawali police station in charge Ramju Uike, the gruesome murder which happened early on Tuesday could be an outcome of some personal rivalry.
"We've secured some vital clues which suggest that the gruesome crime could be the outcome of some ongoing feud," said Uike.
