The police in Soroti are investigating circumstances under which two brothers died in Agaya village, Arapai sub county in Soroti district.
The incident happened on Wednesday according to local reports.
Reports indicate that, the trouble for the brothers started when their father identified as Joseph Emoru lost a bull a fortnight ago.
The deceased brothers have been identified as Levi Okello, 30 and Michael Etoru, 26 all sons Joseph Emoru.
Moses Olang, the District Police Commander of Soroti says the police are hunting for a witch doctor who allegedly gave the deceased a concoction on charges of murder.
The witch doctor was allegedly two million shillings by Emoru to try to rescue the lives of the deceased but in vain.
According to Olang, Emoru had reported the case of the loss of his bull to the police but decided to take another approach as the police were still conducting investigations.
