They were travelling from one place to another to avoid arrest and planning to flee India, he said.

Describing the accused as “contract killers”, the official said they were arrested by a  joint team of the Anjuna police and the Crime Branch from Arpora in North Goa.

A jeep which they were using to move from one place to another was also confiscated by the police, he said.

The accused were identified by the police as Suraj Kadam (26), Abhishekh Chatur (27), Raju Pawar (26) – all from Satara district – Shubham Chatur (27) and Sachin Chavan (29) – both residents of Pune.
