The identities of the victims and causes of death were yet to be ascertained, they added.
All the bodies had injury marks, said Morena Railway Police Force inspector Harikesh Meena.
The bodies of a man and a woman were found near the Shikarpura Railway Crossing, a man was found dead near the tracks at Tussipura and the bodies of two other men were found at Uttampura, he said.
The bodies were sent for autopsy and further investigation is underway, he said.
