Aaftab Poonawala, who was accused of brutally murdering Shraddha Walkar, confessed to killing his live-in partner during a polygraph test on Tuesday.  The police said Aaftab showed no remorse while accepting his crime. During the test, the accused also confessed that he had chopped and dumped Shraddha’s body parts into the jungle.

Cops mentioned that Aaftab also confirmed about dating several women. According to cops, Aaftab behaved normally during the polygraph session and told cops that he has already informed them about how he killed Shraddha to the cops.

Amid high security, Aaftab was brought to Forensic Science Laboratory’s (FSL)  Delhi office office on Tuesday for his polygraph test, a day after he was attacked by people outside the laboratory.

Security was beefed up outside the Forensic Science Laboratory in Rohini, where Aaftab was allegedly attacked by some weapon-wielding people, officials said on Tuesday. Poonawala was attacked on Monday by some people outside the laboratory where he was taken for a polygraph test.

A senior police officer said that security was increased in view of Monday’s incident. The paramilitary force has also been deployed outside the laboratory.

Poonawala had a polygraph session on Tuesday, when he confessed to the crime.

Aaftab Was Attacked

A car stopped the police van on Monday after overtaking it. A few people came out of the car and started attacking the vehicle carrying Poonawala.  The van was driven out of the spot while two attackers were detained, the police said, adding the incident took place around 6.45 pm.  Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) G S Sidhu said, “Two persons have been detained for questioning."

The two detained have been identified as Kuldeep and Nigam, police said.  A case has been registered at the Prashant Vihar Police Station in connection with the incident, police said, adding that the two detained have been sent to judicial custody.

Case Diary

Poonawala allegedly strangled Shraddha Walkar and cut her body into 35 pieces which he kept in a 300-litre fridge for almost three weeks at his residence in Mehrauli in south Delhi, before dumping them across the city over several days.
