A woman, whose body was found stuffed inside a bag and abandoned outside New Delhi Railway station two days ago, is yet to be identified even as enquiries poured in, including one from Britain.

A senior police official said they have received enquiries in person and through telephone from around 40 families regarding the body which was found outside the railway station on Friday morning.

"We have given wide publicity through newspapers and TV channels. We even got a telephone call from Britain asking about details. The family thinks the body is that of their girl who went missing," the official said.

Police also received a call from a family in Patna, the official said adding the photograph they sent did not match with that of the girl.

"We have received around 40 enquiries. Some of them came in person while others either called or sent photographs. We hope to establish the identity of the girl soon," the official said.

The body of the young woman with injury marks was found stuffed in a bag at the railway station premises.

She also had a tattoo on her body. The incident came to light at around 7.30am on Friday when police received a call about an unattended bag lying in the station premises.

Police rushed to the spot and found the body of the woman, aged 20-22 years, with her hands tied inside the bag, a senior police official said.

"The girl was murdered somewhere else and her body has been abandoned here. We are examining CCTV footage to get some information about those who abandoned the bag there," he said.

Eye-witnesses have told police that they saw a couple coming to the spot in an autorickshaw and keeping the bag there. When they left, they did not take the bag.

"Initially, the witnesses thought that they forgot to take the bag. But after sometime, they saw blood coming out of the bag and immediately informed police," the official said adding, they were examining the footage from CCTVs installed in the area.
