Defence Colony

A day after a mutilated body was found outside a three-storeyed house in South Delhi's Defence Colony area, the Delhi Police is still clueless and yet to identify the body.

"We have formed special teams to investigate the case. Other parts of the body are also being searched in the nearby areas," said a senior police officer.

The police said that the man, who was in his early 30s, was killed somewhere else and his torso less body was placed in a white zipped bag outside a house in Defence Colony's C block.

"We are questioning the security guards of the area and are hoping to get a breakthrough soon. One thing is sure that the deceased wasn't the resident of Defence Colony, neither he worked here. The person who placed the bag was well-acquainted with the area as placing a bag during the nightime in the heavily barricaded and gated colony is not easy," the officer added.
