Chopped body parts of an unidentified man have been found stuffed in a suitcase at a beach in Mumbai, a police official said on Tuesday.

Some passersby spotted the black suitcase floating on the waters at the Mahim beach near Makhdoom Shah Baba shrine on Monday evening and alerted the police who rushed to the spot and seized the luggage bag, he said.

The police found a hand detached from shoulder, part of a leg and private parts of a man in a plastic bag inside the suitcase, he said.

The body parts were sent to the civic-run Sion hospital for an examination, he said.

Efforts were on to identify the deceased, the official said, adding that the police were scanning missing person complaints in the city and suburbs.

A case was registered against unidentified persons under Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence), he said. — PTI
