Shraddha Murder Case: The Delhi Police are now looking into whether accused Aftab Ameen Poonawala rented a flat in Delhi’s Chhatarpur as part of a plot to murder Shraddha Walkar. As the Delhi Police solved the six-month-old murder case, Aftab was arrested for killing his girlfriend Shraddha, chopping her body into 35 pieces, and disposing of them.
In the Shraddha Murder Case, another shocking statement came that Aaftab had invited another woman to his rented flat in Mehrauli, south Delhi, for a date just days after murdering Shraddha.
The other woman paid Aaftab a couple of visits in June and July, when Shraddha’s body parts were kept in the kitchen and fridge. The police added that the head and torso would be kept until August.

According to the police, Aftab was a food blogger who used to work at a call centre in the national capital. They claimed that the couple fought frequently.
According to police sources, the accused and the victim, who met on a dating website, have been in a relationship since 2019 and moved to Delhi this year. They were previously in Maharashtra.
According to police, Aaftab murdered Shraddha on May 18 after an argument. Both are from Vasai in Maharashtra’s Palghar district, moved to Delhi this year, and have been in Chhatarpur since May.
Shraddha’s father filed an FIR at the Mehrauli police station on November 8 stating that his daughter had gone missing and that the family hadn’t been in contact with her for more than two months. Aaftab, 28, was arrested on Monday from his flat in Chhatarpur. Shraddha’s phone had been turned off.
During the interrogation, Aaftab stated that he and Shraddha had a rocky relationship and frequently had heated arguments because she was pressuring him to marry.
Shraddha, 27, was brutally killed by her boyfriend and live-in partner Aaftab Amin Poonawala, who then chopped her body into 35 pieces, stuffed them in a refrigerator and dispersed them across the national capital to avoid detection.
The Delhi Police eventually tracked down Aaftab, arrested him, and confessed to the heinous crime that shocked the nation.
According to sources, Aftab had several relationships prior to Shraddha. He also watched a lot of crime movies and web series before committing the crime, including the American crime drama series ‘Dexter.’
