Shraddha Walkar

According to police sources, the Delhi Police have drafted a 3000-page chargesheet against Aaftab Amin Poonawalla, accused of murdering his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar and chopping her body into 35 pieces with a saw-like object.

100 witnesses have been listed; forensics and electronic evidence have been made the basis of the chargesheet. It is likely to be submitted by January end.

The accused, Aftab Poonawalla, last year on May 18, strangled Shraddha Walkar to death in Delhi’s Chhatarpur area, then cut the body into several pieces. The police have also mentioned in the charge sheet that the bones recovered from the forests of Chhatarpur and their DNA report which confirmed that the bones belonged to Shraddha.

Apart from this, Aftab’s confession is also on the record, along with the narco test. Though, as per sources, these reports do not have much importance in the court. It is alleged that after chopping Shraddha’s body, Aaftab bought a refrigerator to preserve the chopped pieces before disposing of the remains at different locations in and around Delhi; at night-time over the next 18 days.
