Shraddha Murder Case: Delhi Police Scanning Accused’s Social Profile

New Delhi [India]: After cracking a horrific Shraddha Walker murder case in the national capital, the Delhi Police is scanning accused Aftab’s social media accounts and reaching out to his friends who had met him before his relationship with the victim girl, according to the sources.

The Delhi Police sources said that they are trying to get in touch with his other friends.

Aftab, her live-in partner and a resident of Mumbai, was caught by Delhi Police on Saturday, on the basis of the deceased’s father’s complaint.

Meanwhile, friends of Shraddha Walker, the girl from Maharashtra who was allegedly killed by her live-in partner in Delhi, have narrated their side of the story, painting a picture of Shraddha as they knew her.

Shraddha’s friends who were from Maharashtra’s Palghar said that initially, the couple lived happily, but things deteriorated between them and she wanted to break the relationship.

Rajat Shukla, Shraddha’s friend, said, “Today suddenly the news flashed on the mobile of her murder. I was shaken to the core of my soul that my friend has been murdered. She had told us in 2019 that she was in a relationship since 2018. They lived together. Initially, they lived happily, but then Sharddha started saying that Aftab beats her. She wanted to leave him but couldn’t do so.”

Rajat said that it had become “very difficult” for her to come out of that relationship, adding that “her life had become like hell”.

“While shifting to Delhi, the decision was taken with their mutual consent that they would do a job there. After shifting to Delhi, our contact with her nearly broke,” he added.

Laxman Nadir, another friend of Shraddha from Palghar, detailed the circumstances under which they approached the police.

“She had contacted me two months ago. She did not reply to any of my texts since August. her phone was switched off. That is when it became a point of concern to me that I should start reaching out to the people. When I got no update, I finally told her brother that I had spoken to her for the last time in July. So it’s better if we reach out to the police and seek their help,” he said.

He said that the couple used to have a lot of fights, due to which they were once ready to approach the police, however, respecting Shraddha’s sentiments, they decided against it.

“They used to have a lot of fights. There was a fight to such an extent that she texted me on WhatsApp and asked me to take her somewhere that night. She said that if she lived with Aftab that night, he would kill her. We, friends, had taken her out of her house that night and also had warned Aftab that we would approach the police. But respecting Shraddha’s sentiments we said that we would not approach the police because she told us not to do so,” he said.

Delhi police solved the six-month-old murder case and arrested a man for allegedly killing his 28-year-old live-in partner, chopping her body into 35 pieces and disposing of them at different places in and around the national capital.

The accused identified as Aftab Amin Poonawalla (28), a resident of Mumbai, was caught on Saturday on the basis of the deceased’s father’s complaint and has been sent to police remand for five days, the police said on Monday.
