Earlier on Thursday, the Central Forensic Science Laboratory on Thursday confirmed that DNA found from South Delhi’s Mehrauli forest area has been matched from Shraddha Walkar’s father.
Moreover, the investigators were not able to ascertain the bones and blood samples from Aftab Poonawala’s Chhattarpur residence in south Delhi. But after the DNA report, the investigators will get great help to solve the investigation.
Aaftab killed her live-in partner Shraddha and in 35 pieces Aaftab chopped her body. Based on his confession he was arrested in November and on 9 December Aaftab was produced before a court via video conferencing and for 14 days his judicial custody was extended.
“The forensics reports will be out soon. It will help us ascertain if it was Walkar whose bones we have collected or someone else. The DNA extracted from bones and blood samples need to be matched with Walker’s father’s and brother’s samples. Reports on murder weapons are also awaited and we will soon have a breakthrough,” an investigator said.
However, to find the truth police are gathering evidence through psycho-analysis tests, lie-detector, and narco-analysis tests.
