Korba (Chhattisgarh), Jul 11 (PTI) Two sacks and a bag containing severed body parts have been recovered from a reservoir in Korba district, police said on Thursday.

Villagers first spotted a bag and a haversack floating in the reservoir of Bandhapara dam near Gopalpur village on Wednesday morning and alerted police, said an official.

Severed parts of a leg and a hand were found inside.

Suspecting that the remaining body parts were also dumped in the reservoir, police called in divers who retrieved a second sack containing a head, a passport and an Aadhaar card photocopy, the police official added.
