New Delhi: Aaftab Ameen Poonawala and his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar often used to fight over financial issues. According to police sources, prior to the murder, both of them quarreled about who would go to Mumbai to bring their belongings to Delhi.
Aaftab, who confessed to the murder of his partner, had previously informed the police that Shraddha was pressuring him to tie the knot, and that led to the crime.
Sources claim that Aaftab told police officers that he had no cash at all and had to bring our luggage from Mumbai, and that a fight had broken out over who would go to bring out the luggage.
On May 18, Aaftab killed Shraddha by suffocating her, cutting up her body into 35 pieces, putting them in a 300-liter refrigerator, and then throwing them in a forest area in Delhi’s Chhatarpur. Police have asked for a narcotics test on accused Aaftab.
On the day of the murder, Aaftab Googled the technique of cleaning the blood to conceal the murder. He used chemicals to eliminate all traces of her after slicing her into pieces. Blood samples from the father of Shraddha Walkar have been collected for the DNA analysis of the 13 body pieces that have so far been recovered from the jungle.
The crime’s weapon, phone, and Shraddha Walker’s head phone, however, have not yet been found.
Shraddha Walkar’s parents, who hadn’t spoken to her for a long time because they disapproved of her interfaith relationship with Aaftab, reported the incident to the police after learning from her friends that she had been out of touch for several months.
On Thursday, Aaftab will be produced in Saket Court, and the police are hoping for further remand of the accused so that they can collect more evidence and reach the bottom of the case.
