Aftab To Be Produced Before Court Through Video Conferencing

New Delhi [India]: A Delhi Court on Thursday allowed an application submitted by the Delhi Police for the appearance of Aftab Amin Poonawala through video conferencing due to the security and sensitivity of the case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Aviral Shukla allowed the application after considering the facts submitted by the police. “As per the information, some religious and miscreants may attack the accused. Under these circumstances, it would not be appropriate to produce the accused in the courtroom,” Delhi Police submitted.

After considering the application, the judge said, “I am aware of the public sentiment attached to the case. I am also aware of the media coverage and sensitivity of the matter.
In the interest of justice, the application for appearance through video conferencing is allowed.”

While the court was hearing the application, lawyers were protesting outside the courtroom and raising slogans against Aftab. They were raising the slogan “Shraddha ke hatyare ko fansi do, fansi do” (Hang the murderer of Shraddha).

The court, thereafter, said that the application for seeking an extension of police custody will be taken up through VC.

Aftab was arrested on Saturday after Delhi police started probing into a missing complaint filed by Shraddha’s father Vikas Walker. He had attempted to dupe the police of Delhi and Mumbai in the initial days of the investigation.

Making a huge claim in the Shraddha Walker murder case, Delhi Police sources on Thursday said that the accused Aftab Poonawalla had charred his live-in partner’s face to hide her identity. The Delhi Police sources claimed that he had first chopped her body into 35 pieces, then burnt her face in such a way that it becomes unidentifiable even if the body parts are discovered.

“During the interrogation, Aftab revealed that he had learnt about all this on the internet, and also about how to hide the body from everyone’s reach,” the sources claimed.
