The head, torso, and legs of the man were found in separate places in Dharan, confirmed Deputy Superintendent of Police Narendra Kunwar. The identification of the man is yet to be ascertained.

“The head and legs were found in a bag in a jungle along the Dharan-Bhedetar road section. The torso was found in a bush. The man appears to be in his 40s,” said police.
