QUETTA: A limb-less body was recovered from one of the passenger trains at the Quetta railway station on Friday. According to the superintendent railway police, Mohammad Sultan Abro, sweepers were cleaning the Jaffar Express which had arrived from Rawalpindi when they spotted a suitcase in compartment 4. A body, wrapped in a plastic cover, was stuffed in the suitcase. It was later shifted to the Sandeman Hospital for identification. “The body was in a deplorable condition – it was without head, legs and hands. The culprits had also removed the skin,” doctors at the hospital told reporters. The railway police have registered a case and launched an investigation.
