Aaftab was arrested last week for allegedly killing Shraddha in their rented house in Chhattarpur Pahadi area on May 18, three days after moving into the flat. Police said he “attempted to mislead interrogators by claiming ‘Shraddha’ had severed her relationship with him and moved out of their rented accommodation”.
The case came to light after Shraddha’s father contacted Mumbai police in October to file a missing person complaint. Aaftab is accused of having strangled her and cut her into several pieces before throwing them away.
In other updates: Delhi Police have formed multiple teams to visit Gurgaon, Mumbai, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand as part of the investigation into the murder of 27-year-old Shraddha Walkar allegedly by her 28-year-old partner Aaftab Poonawala. Officers said the teams will look for evidence that they were unable to recover from Delhi and will also interview Walkar’s friends.
Aaftab, meanwhile, will undergo a narco-analysis test in the next two or three days, as a court in Delhi has granted permission to do so. His phone and other gadgets will be sent for forensic examination along with the suspicious body parts, mostly in bone form, which were recovered from Delhi’s Mehrauli forest.

The case came to light after Walkar’s father contacted Mumbai police in October to file a missing person complaint. Aaftab is accused of strangling her to death and cutting her body into several pieces before throwing them away. Police, however, treat the details he shares during questioning with skepticism, with officers saying only a forensic test can confirm whether suspicious body parts or blood samples found in the flat are indeed those of Walkar. .
Meanwhile, the Jamia Millia Islamia administration continued its crackdown on the Jamia Teachers’ Association (JTA) on Friday, calling it an unauthorized body and threatening to take action against any teacher attending its meeting.
On Thursday, the university administration issued an order stating that it dissolved the current association which was elected in November 2020.
The administration had also suspended a professor, Sonya Gupta, who had been appointed as a returning officer by the JTA to organize the next elections which were to be held on November 23. Along with this, the VC formed a six-member committee “to look into loopholes in the JTA Bylaws/Constitution.”
