Mumbai: In a gruesome discovery, tiny body parts, fragments were found floating in a septic tank of a seven storey building after sanitation workers entered the tank for cleaning.
The shocking incident is reported from Mumbai’s Virar region where body parts of an unidentified person were found in the septic tank of a seven-storey building of a housing complex on Tuesday with few body parts also scattered in a nullah behind the complex, TOI reports.
Sanitation workers were shocked to find the parts when they enter the septic tank of ‘C’ wing of Bachraj Paradise, Evershine Avenue in Global City, after residents complained of choked washrooms.
The Arnala police were later called in after the discovery.
The police collected the tiny body fragments, thumb, ring in plastic bags and find it difficult to ascertain if the parts belong to a male or female.
It is speculated the victim was likely murdered in one of the vacant flats in the building and severed body parts was disposed of through the toilet which ended choking the housing society’s pipeline to the septic tank.
The police said that the accused ensured only the flesh was disposed of in the toilet and nullah since no bones were found.
At least three to four flats in the ‘C’ wing are locked and vacant in the building.
A probe into the matter has begun.
