Shraddha Walkar Case: Cops have also cited Aaftab’s confessions and his narco test result (File)

New Delhi:

The Delhi police have prepared a 3,000-page draft chargesheet against Aaftab Poonawala who allegedly murdered his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar and cut up her body into 35 pieces before scattering them across the city, sources have said.

The draft document, sources say, has testimonies of more than 100 witnesses and it is based on crucial electronic and forensic evidence which cops have gathered during their months-long investigation.

Cops have also cited Aaftab’s confessions, his narco test result and forensic test reports in the draft chargesheet. It is currently being reviewed by legal experts.

Aaftab Poonawala is alleged to have killed Shraddha Walkar last year on May 18 at their rented flat in Delhi’s Mehrauli after an argument. He had chopped up her body into 35 pieces which he stored in a 300-litre fridge.

He later dumped the body parts in the Mehrauli forest area over several days.

The saw and blade allegedly used to chop up the body were allegedly thrown in the bushes at a part of Gurugram, while the meat cleaver was dumped in a dustbin in south Delhi, sources said.

Last month, a DNA test had confirmed that the bones that Aaftab Poonawala led the cops to in the urban forest were Shraddha’s.

The crime came to light gradually after her father went to the police in their hometown in Maharashtra sometime in October.

The father, Vikas Walkar, had not been in touch with her as he was upset over her inter-faith relationship with Aaftab Poonawala. Having met over a dating app, the couple lived together for some months in their hometown Vasai near Mumbai before shifting to Delhi only in May last year.

The 28-year-old has been in judicial custody since November last year. Aaftab, sources say, had earlier told a Delhi court that he had killed his partner Shraddha Walkar “in the heat of the moment”.
