Twelve more people have been arrested in connection with murder of seven people Sunday in Burugulikera village of Jharkhand’s West Sighbhum district, allegedly due to a clash between pro-Pathalgadi and anti-Pathalgadi groups.
The total number of people arrested in connection with the murders is now 15.
Seven people were killed and decapitated following a village meeting on January 19, allegedly after they ransacked four households of pro-Pathalgadi villagers. The family members of those killed, however, have maintained that they were targeted because they refused to follow Pathalgadi.
