The bodies were found by labourers who were cleaning a vacant land. The bodies wrapped in plastic bags were found on the grassy land on Raja Rammohan Roy Sarani under the Haridebpur Police station area when labourers were cleaning it, a senior officer of Kolkata Police said, according to PTI report.

Some of the bodies appeared to be in a semi-decomposed state, while a few were fully decomposed, the police officer said.

"We have no clue where from they (the bodies) have come. Going by circumstantial evidences, it seems that they were dumped there as the land was lying abandoned," the officer said.

Police a launched a probe into the matter.
