Mehrauli Update: Accused Aftab to be Produced in Saket Court Today

Delhi: The Mehrauli murder mystery is deepening every day. While the Delhi police have not yet found the head and torso of the victim Shraddha Walker, the accused Aftab Amin Poonawala is revealing more secrets every day. He is in police custody now and going to be presented in Saket court today by the Delhi police.

In his confession, Aftab admitted to having relationships with 20 more girls apart from Shraddha. Now, the police have found out that he has an outstanding water bill in his name in his flat in Delhi where he murdered Shraddha. The amount is not too high though but the Delhi Police is hopeful to use it as evidence against him. 

According to a leading daily, a police source said, “After the murder, Aftab used a lot of water to clean the blood stains leading to a high water bill and the pending bill. Neighbours told the Police that Aftab used to regularly go and check the building’s water tank. The flat owner knew that they are not a married couple. They were given the flat through a broker. Aftab used to deposit Rs 9,000 into the account of the owner between 8 and 10 of every month.”

The source further added, “On May 18, there was a fight between the two regarding bringing household items from Mumbai. They used to fight over who would bear the household expenses and bring items. Aftab got very angry about this. The quarrel started around 8 pm on May 18 when Aftab strangled Shraddha to death. He kept her body in the room overnight and went to buy a knife and refrigerator the next day.”

Aftab has confessed to the crime now but he managed to hide it for a few months because “he is very sharp-minded”, as the police said. He also transferred a big amount from Shraddha’s bank account to his own after killing her, which lead the police to solve the case more evidently. Shraddha Walker and Aftab Amin Poonawala were in a live-in relationship for a few months before he killed her brutally and chopped her body into 35 pieces on May 18. It took the Delhi Police a few months to nab him and solve the murder mystery.
