Shraddha Walkar Murder: Cops Complete Arguments on Charges Against Aaftab Poonawala

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Monday completed its arguments on charges against Aaftab Amin Poonawala, accused of killing his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar and dismembering her body into pieces and throwing it across the Mehrauli forest.

Additional Sessions Judge Manisha Khurana Kakkar posted the matter for further proceedings on March 25.

SPP Prasad said incriminating circumstances are clearly revealed through reliable and clinching evidence and they form a chain of events. The chain of events leads to an irrefutable conclusion about the guilt of the accused, he added.

Advocate Javed Hussain, legal aid counsel (LAC) for Poonawala, sought time to respond to the arguments.

Earlier on February 21, a magisterial court committed the case to the sessions court after taking cognisance of the charge sheet filed by the police.

The Delhi police filed a chargesheet of over 6,000 pages on January 24 including minor details that revealed how and why Aaftab carried out the gruesome murder.

The Delhi Police took legal opinion before filing the charge sheet, as their case depends on scientific evidence in the matter as Walkar`s body was not recovered.
