Those attacked have been identified as Wajid Ali, 35; his father Sayed Ali, 52, and mother Sameena Ali, 48 -- all residents of Lalgaon village named located around 35 km from Chhindwara.

On September 15, when Wajid and his parents were on their way to meet a relative in Auriya village, they were noticed by the villagers and were attacked.
