Youth beheaded, body parts strewn on rail tracks
However, the victim's family believes that it was not an accident. His father Sanjeev Bhasin pointed out that someone phoned them more than 15 times nearly half an hour after Paras left their Meenakshi Garden residence to meet a lawyer. The anonymous caller told Sanjeev's wife about the exact spot where her son's headless body was lying.
"We found his arms at different places while the torso was found at another place. His legs too were found chopped off and thrown away at quite some distance from each other. His phone was found crushed, with the SIM card removed. If at all he was crushed by a train, we suspect he was first murdered and then thrown on the tracks," said the victim's brother-in-law Karan.
Uday Bhasin revealed that on May 9 this year his brother secretly tied the knot with a girl who belongs to a rich family. Paras, a tattoo artist, had fallen in love with her six years ago when she used to reside in west Delhi. Later, the girl's family moved to Ghaziabad.
"Even though she visited him secretly after work or on her way to a showroom owned by her family in Kamla Nagar, she never came to stay with us because she feared her parents. After the marriage, we too tried convincing them to let go for the sake of the children's happiness. Three days ago when they threatened to cut my son into pieces, we thought they were just angry and would calm down," said Sanjeev Bhasin.
According to Karan, Paras received an SMS - "I apologise for my parents' behaviour. They shouldn't have insulted you like that! Please forget me" - from the girl around 1 pm on Saturday.
After seeing this message, Paras felt that only a lawyer could help him get his wife to stay with him. Hence, he ventured out around 3.30 pm on Sept 1 but within 45 minutes the family was informed about his death.
