Police
van
carrying

murder
accused
Aftab
Poonawalla

outside
FSL
office
in
Delhi.

Aftab Poonawalla


When
it
began
to
end
for
Shraddha:

Aftab
and
Shraddha
met
through
a
dating
app
Bumble
in
2019
and
later
moved
in
together
at
a
rented
accommodation
in
Delhi’s
Chhattarpur
area.
Her
parents
were
against
the
inter-faith
relationship
and
had
stopped
talking
to
her
after
she
decided
to
move
to
Delhi
with
him.

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

The
police
said
that
the
couple
would
fight
regularly
over
issues
such
as
marriage
and
who
would
bear
the
household
expenses.
On
May
18,
he
strangled
her
to
death
and
then
set
out
to
buy
a
knife
and
fridge.
Following
a
missing
person’s
complaint
filed
by
Shraddha’s
father
on
November
10
as
her
daughter
was
untraceable
for
over
two
months,
the
police
arrested
Aftab,
six
months
after
the
crime
took
place.

Aftab
was
arrested
on
November
12
and
sent
to
five-day
police
custody,
which
was
further
extended
by
five
days
on
November
17.
