MAHARASHTRA, Aug.17: A doctor, in India, has been arrested on charges of injecting six people to death and burying them at his farmhouse, local police said Tuesday.

The recent disappearance of a victim triggered investigation which led to the arrest of 42-year-old Santosh Pol in a town in the Maharashtra State.

Upon interrogation, Pol confessed that he has killed six people by injecting a lethal amount of drugs into their bodies. Five of the victims were women.

Local police have recovered four bodies from Pol's farmhouse, but have not determined the doctor's motives.

"He has been constantly changing his statements during interrogations, which makes it difficult for us to understand his motives," police inspector Padmakar Ghanvat said.

Pol's nurse has also been taken into custody on suspicions of assisting Pol with the murders.
