Indian police have said they are still hunting down four more suspects who they believe were also involved in the attack.

Fernanda, 28, and her husband, Vicente, 63, claim they were attacked by a gang as they were setting up a makeshift tent while they stopped for the night in India's Jharkhand.

Vicente claims his mouth was "destroyed" after he was beaten with a "helmet and a stone".
