Four members of a family were hacked to death by unidentified assailants in Chhote ke Purwa locality on the outskirts of Banda in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Wednesday.

The bodies of Mahavir (46), his wife Chunni (43) and two minor sons Rajkumar and Pawan Kumar were found in their house, deputy inspector general of police Gyaneshwar Tiwari said.

Prima facie, the matter appears to be that of old enmity, he said, adding that a probe was on in the matter. The bodies have been sent for post-mortem examination.

The couple’s six-year-old daughter and a son were saved as they were sleeping in a neighbour’s house.
