"The body was fully decomposed. We could only identify that it is a male body. We are yet to ascertain the age of the deceased," a police officer said.

Prima facie, the man was killed two-three days ago somewhere else and the body was dumped just after the Art of Living festival ended, the official said.

The body, which was found a few metres from gate No.11 of the festival venue, was sent for post-mortem examination.

The World Culture Festival was held in New Delhi from 11 to 13 March.
