The dismembered body parts of a man have been found in a freezer in a rented room in Bangkok's Bang Khunthian district.

Police at the Samae Dam station were alerted to the discovery in a commercial building in the southernmost district of Bangkok on Sunday.

Police and rescue workers found a white freezer on the fourth floor of the building. Inside were a man's legs. There were bloodstains in the room and a bathroom, and a chainsaw was found under a bed.

Investigators were checking CCTV footage in the area and its vicinity to identify suspects.

At the scene, a Myanmar man said he and four compatriots visited the building last week. An Indian man occupied and used the building as a job placement office, he said.

Four of them were later brought to work elsewhere, the Myanmar man continued. The other one – identified only as Yao – remained at the building, and friends lost contact with him on Saturday.

The Myanmar national returned to the building on Sunday. He phoned the owner of the building, who told him him to break into the property. It was then that he made the gruesome discovery and called police.

Pol Maj Gen Nopasilp Poonsawat, deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said later on Sunday that the Indian job broker had rented the building on Jan 13 and the five Myanmar migrants had stayed there to wait for jobs.

The four Myanmar workers returned to the building to get their luggage, he said.

Pol Maj Gen Nopasilp said there were traces of a struggle, and that the Indian national left the country for Chennai at 8.50pm on Saturday.
