Man Killed Partner In Delhi, Dumped Body Pieces At 2 am For 18 Days: Cops


26-year-old Shraddha worked with the accused in Mumbai.

New Delhi:

In a shocking case, a man allegedly strangled his live-in partner, chopped her body into 35 pieces and dumped them in Delhi’s Mehrauli forest over 18 days, say police sources. He would step out at 2 am every day to dump the body parts, sources say.

The accused has been sent to 5-day police custody.

Aftab Ameen Poonawalla, 28, allegedly strangled his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar on May 18 after they had a fight. He then chopped her body into 35 pieces and bought a 300-litre fridge to keep them, sources say. Over the next 18 days, he disposed of the pieces at different areas of the Mehrauli forest, they added.

26-year-old Shraddha worked at the call centre for a multinational company in Mumbai where she met Poonawalla. The two started dating and moved in together. After her family did not approve of their relationship, the couple eloped and came to Delhi. They started living in a flat in Mehrauli.

Soon after, one of her friends informed Shraddha’s brother about her phone being switched off for over 2 months. On November 8, her father Vikas Madaan Walkar came to Delhi to check on his daughter and found a lock on her flat. He approached the Mehrauli Police and filed a complaint alleging kidnapping.

In his complained, Walkar alleged that Shraddha had earlier told him that Poonawalla used to frequently beat her.

On the basis of this, police arrested Poonawalla on Saturday. During investigation, he revealed that the two fought frequently as Shraddha wanted to marry him, police sources said.

The police have filed a case of murder against Poonawalla.

Police said some remains were recovered from the forest but it is not known if they are human remains. The knife used by the accused, who was reportedly trained as a chef, has also not been found yet, they said.
