Since Shraddha Walkar’s murder occurred six months ago, much work remains to be done to connect the dots in the sensational Shraddha Walkar murder case.
Accused Aaftab Amin Poonawala, her live-in partner, admitted on Monday to strangling her after a fight on May 18. Aaftab claimed he bought a new freezer and knife the next day and chopped the body into pieces and stored them in the freezer over the next few days.
He removed the body parts and disposed of them in nearby forest areas.
1. Police discovered 10-13 bones in the forest where Aaftab claimed to have disposed of Shradhha Walkar’s body in 35 pieces after killing her. Her head has yet to turn.
2. The bones have been sent to a forensic lab to determine whether or not they belong to an animal.
3. Blood stains were discovered in the Chhatarpur flat’s kitchen. The samples have been sent for testing.
4. DNA samples from Shraddha’s father were taken to compare to the blood and recovered body parts.
5. The pending $300 water bill for Aaftab’s flat demonstrates that he used a large amount of water, most likely to remove the blood and any other physical evidence of the murder.
6. Investigators are also looking for CCTV footage from the area, which is difficult because most CCTVs only record for 15 days, but cops want footage from the last six months.
7. A bag containing Shraddha’s belongings has been discovered, but the family has yet to identify it.
8. Aaftab has requested a narcotics test, which will determine whether he is telling the truth or misleading the investigation.
9. In May, Aaftab went to the doctor for treatment of a knife wound. The doctor stated that Aaftab was agitated and claimed that he was injured while cutting fruit. The doctor confirmed that the injury was not severe.
10. After murdering Shraddha, Aaftab used her bank account app to transfer $54,000.
Shraddha’s skull, her phone, and the clothes Shraddha and Aaftab were wearing on May 18 have yet to be discovered. The clothes were dumped in a moving garbage truck.
