Four people - Munshi Murmu, Kaleshwar Soren, Kishan Tudu and Harjohan Kisku - have been arrested so far. Police said investigations are on and action will be taken against those involved in the gruesome crime, reported News 18.

The victims had allegedly stolen the buffaloes from a village and were sneaking out when they were caught.
