A suitcase with suspected body parts inside was found in a forest area in Faridabad’s Surajkund Thursday afternoon, said police.

According to police, the suitcase was found in the bushes near a check post. Police said a passerby noticed the suitcase and found it suspicious and called the control room.

A police officer said around 2.35 pm, they received information about the suitcase, following which senior police officials, two crime branch teams and a forensic team reached the spot.

“It appears to be a torso. It seems that the limbs, head and other parts had been decapitated. The remains are decomposed… Prima facie, it appears that a person was murdered elsewhere and a part of the body was dumped here to avoid identification. The remains had been wrapped in a plastic bag and a sack. Two-three clothes and a belt were recovered near the suitcase. The entire forest area within the vicinity has been cordoned off and searched,” said a police officer.

“Forensic teams are collecting samples, which will be sent to the lab for identification and further DNA analysis. A post-mortem will shed more clarity,” said the police officer.

Sube Singh, spokesperson, Faridabad police, said, “No identification has been done. The remains have been sent to civil hospital for the autopsy. We are checking CCTVs in the vicinity.”

Police sources confirmed that they had contacted the Delhi police team investigating the murder case of Shraddha Walkar. “We had contacted Delhi police officers in Mehrauli to also look at the remains, but no association with the case in Delhi has emerged so far,” said a police officer.
