Police last night began a suspected murder investigation following the discovery of a woman's severed arms in a rubbish bin at Tsuen Wan multi-storey car park.

Forensic experts took finger prints of the hands yesterday and will perform more examinations such as X-rays today in a bid to identify the owner. The prints will be matched with the missing persons list.

Acting chief inspector Choi Yuk-kwong said the fingernails were painted with red nail-polish. He thought the victim was aged between 20 and 30.

'We believe that the arms were cut by a very heavy sharp object within the past 24 hours . . . we have launched a full-scale search,' he said.

Police last night failed to find anything at two rubbish depots near Luk Yeung Sun Tsuen and the old Tsuen Wan police station.
