Shraddha Walkar was troubled by the violence of her live-in partner Aaftab Amin Poonawala and wanted to leave him.
The reports claim that in May earlier this year, Aaftab and Shraddha had decided to live separately. However, Aaftab did not like this thing and he felt that Shraddha would get involved with someone else. After this, Aaftab killed Shraddha and cut her into pieces.
Aaftab’s polygraphy test was done on Tuesday amid tight security. BSF was deployed outside Rohini FSL as there was an attempt to attack Aftab here after his questioning on Monday evening. Now Aftab’s narco test will be done on December 1. Delhi Police has got its approval from the court.
Special Commissioner of Police Sagarpreet Hooda had appealed to the Delhi Court to get Aaftab’s narco test done on December 1, which has been approved. Aaftab’s narco test will be done at Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital.
BSF has been deployed outside the lab after the attack on Aftab on Monday. Two accused of the attack have been sent to jail on judicial custody for 14 days. Delhi Police have recorded the statement of Jimesh Nambiar, who got Shraddha a job. According to reports, Shraddha’s father has also got his statement recorded.
Aaftab is very confident during interrogation
It has also been learned from various reports that Aaftab was very confident during interrogation. When he is questioned, he is very prompt in answering. This gives the impression that he gives a pre-thought answer.
The police also suspect that when Aftab was called for questioning by the Mumbai Police in September-October, some body parts of Shraddha were present in his Delhi flat.
Delhi Police seeks Aaftab’s information from apps
On the other hand, the Delhi Police have written letters to several platforms including Google Pay, Paytm, Bumble, Facebook, Instagram asking for details on Aaftab’s accounts. Some apps have also given details. Police have found some suspicious links of Google browsing, which were searched by Aaftab.
13 bones found so far, blood samples sent for examination
The police have so far found 13 bones on the trail of Aftab. Information about her jaw has also been received. The matter of recovery of some body parts from Gurugram has also come to the fore. Apart from this, other than bathroom and kitchen, FSL has also received samples of blood stains from the bedroom, which have been sent for examination.
The Delhi Police have also recovered some weapons from the jungle and from Aaftab’s flat. However, with which of these weapons was used to chip Shraddha’s body, it will be known after the CFSL report comes. In this case, no suspicious role of Badri, who got the flat to Aftab and Shraddha, has been found yet. He only showed them the house.
