According to the Titwala police, parts of the legs and head of the decomposed body, which is nearly 10 to 12 days old, was found after locals from the area complained. A sack was also found from the bushes, which is suspected to have been used to carry the chopped body parts. “We have sent the body for postmortem and we can identify the gender only after we get the report. We have not yet received any complaint,” said Rajesh Khopkar, assistant inspector. “The other body parts are still missing. Our team is searching,” he added.
