New Delhi: In the breaking development, Investigation is going on by the Delhi Police regarding the Shraddha murder case. On Tuesday, the court once again extended the remand of accused Aftab. Aftab Amin Poonawalla, accused in the gruesome Shraddha Walkar murder case, on Tuesday left the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Rohini as the Delhi Police began court-sanctioned polygraph tests to take the probe forward. Aaftab is accused of strangling Shraddha, his live-in partner, to death and chopping her body into 35 pieces.
He is also alleged to have preserved the chopped body parts in a refrigerator before dumping them in the forests of south Delhi’s Chhatarpur. The process for the polygraph test on Aaftab began at the Rohini Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), informed Delhi Police sources on Tuesday. “Pre-med sessions and scientific sessions for Aftab’s polygraph test leading up to the polygraph test are underway,” said FSL officials on Tuesday.
Delhi Police claimed to solve the six-month-old murder case after arresting Aaftab on the basis of a complaint filed by Shraddha’s father. Aaftab and Shraddha met on a dating site and moved in together to a rented accommodation in Chhatarpur as the relationship grew.
Significantly, according to the lawyer of the accused Aftab Poonawala, Aftab said in front of the judge in the court that whatever allegations are being leveled, there is no truth in those allegations. But whatever was done by me was done in anger. Aftab told the court that he is fully cooperating with the police in the investigation. The accused said that due to long days, he is not able to remember many things.
The police have not yet found the saws and weapons involved in the incident. Even a part of Shraddha’s head has not been found. Only a few bones and part of the jaw have been found. Even the clothes involved in the incident have not been recovered by the police. Even the police is engaged in the search of Shraddha’s phone.
15-20 questions were asked during test
Sources said a questionnaire of 15-20 questions were asked so that the sequence of events in the gruesome killing can be ascertained. After the polygraph test, police are likely to go for the narco analysis which was permitted by the court last week.
Sources said that during the police questioning, the accused told investigators that he dumped the weapon and tools, used to chop Walkar’s body into 35 pieces, at the DLF Phase III forest area in Gurgaon after May.
