Prove a problem to be in NP-complete

Problem: Given n paths in a directed graph G(V, E) and an integer k, find out k paths among them such that no two of them pass through a common node.

Prove that the given problem is in NP-complete.

I was able to prove that the problem is in NP. Hint is that we need to come up with a polynomial time reduction of the independent set problem to this problem prove that it is in NP-hard.
