Nearly a dozen families have approached Delhi police to identify the headless body of a 25-year-old woman — chopped into eight pieces and packed in a plastic sack — found near the Inderlok Metro station in north Delhi early on Saturday morning.

The police said families from different parts of Delhi and elsewhere had approached them.

“We have no means to identify the body. Teams have been formed to find the head, which will help us to identify the woman,” a senior officer said. The police said as the body was found some distance away from the Metro station, CCTV cameras would not be of help.

“We are scanning the list of missing persons. We are noting the details of families that have approached us. Once the woman is identified, the details will be crosschecked,” the officer added. The police suspect that the woman was murdered somewhere else and the body later dumped on the roadside near a park on the Inderlok-Bharat Nagar route. The woman was found wearing only a green cotton kurta. There are three tattoos on her right hand.

A case under Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence) has been registered against unknown persons at the Sarai Rohilla police station.
