All the clothes from Aaftab Amin Poonawala’s house in South Delhi have been taken by Delhi Police personnel probing the gruesome murder of Shraddha Walkar. They will be sent for forensic examination, sources said.
According to them, investigators have not found the clothes the two were wearing on May 18, when the crime was committed.
During almost three weeks at Poonawala’s house in Mehrauli, he kept Walkar’s body in a 300-litre fridge before dumping it over several days past midnight across the city with the body parts stored in a 300-litre fridge for nearly three weeks.
In addition to Poonawala’s clothes, Delhi Police has also seized Walkar’s clothes. These will be forensically examined, a police source explained.
So far, 13 body parts, mostly skeletal remains, have been recovered by the police. Various locations in south Delhi are being searched for more body parts by Poonawala, according to the source.
Several body parts have been recovered by the police in Gurugram on Friday, and they will also be analyzed forensically. It is still unknown what happened to Walkar’s head.
Several sharp objects have been recovered from Poonawala’s house, and the police will examine them to see if they were used to chop Walkar’s body.
Sleuths in Gurugram recovered some body parts after Delhi Police sent teams to Maharashtra, Haryana, and Himachal Pradesh to search for evidence.
Within five days, the accused will undergo a narco test ordered by a local court.
Police are visiting several locations to determine whether any development during Poonawala’s trips prompted Poonawala to kill Walkar after they left Mumbai.
