Chaibasa/UNI: Skeletal remains of five persons -- a couple and their three children -- have been recovered from a forest located under Tonto Police Station area of the West Singhbhum district.

Police sources on Wednesday said the family had been missing since since July 14, 2020.

Sources claimed that they were murdered over a land dispute and later their bodies were buried 20 kilometers away from the Baihatu village next to a river.

Three people have been taken into custody for questioning in the case, sources added.
