On Tuesday, Aaftab Amin Poonawala, accused in the murder of Shraddha Walkar, told the Delhi court that he killed his girlfriend in a fit of rage.
Following a special hearing, the Saket court today extended Aftab Poonawala’s police custody for four more days.
The court heard that Aaftab said what happened was spontaneous.
In May, Shraddha Walker’s body was allegedly strangled and then chopped up by the accused.
A police report said Poonawala had given misleading answers to police when he confessed to murdering and chopping up his live-in partner.
Aftab had previously been accused of misleading an investigation by the Delhi Police in court.
Aaftab was ordered to undergo a narcotics test within five days by the court on Thursday.
Aftab Amin Poonawalla was arrested based on a complaint made by Shraddha’s father. The case involved a blind murder that had been ongoing for six months.
According to Delhi Police interrogation, Aftab Poonawala murdered Shraddha on May 18 and then planned on disposing of her body. As part of his preparation for chopping off the body, he told police that he had read about human anatomy.
