“Phase-1 police station was alerted around 10.45am that a passerby had spotted some body parts in a three-foot deep drain running along the roadside, adjacent to some factories in the Sector 8 industrial area. Immediately, police teams as well as a forensics team reached the spot and a probe was initiated,” said the DCP.

He said the parts have been sent for a post-mortem examination.

“Preliminary investigations revealed that the body parts are at least four to five days old and an autopsy is being carried out to confirm the same. Police teams have been deployed to identify the body and retrieve the remaining pieces. Footage from CCTV cameras in the nearby areas are being checked for clues. Once the post-mortem report arrives, we will take the probe forward,” he said.
