Headless Tattoo artist's body found in 16 pieces scattered across Delhi (and police say it was an accident)

The headless body of a tattoo artist has been found cut into at least 16 pieces - but police are insisting his death was an accident.

The body of Paras Bhasin was discovered by railway tracks in Ganesh Nagar in east Delhi, India, and detectives believe he was crushed by a train.

The 23-year-old could only be identified by the tattoo on his arm, which bore the name of his wife.

Mr Bhasin's family believe he was murdered, claiming his wife's relatives had threatened him recently because they had not accepted the marriage.

His mutilated body parts were spread across half a kilometre and, according to the dead man's family, police have yet to recover the head.
