Delhi Police have finally got some major material evidence in Shraddha Walkar murder case.

DNA test has confirmed that the bones that alleged killer Aaftab Poonawala led the cops to, in a jungle in Delhi’s Mehrauli area and in Gurugram, are of Shraddha Walkar.

Delhi Police also found Traces of blood in flat, and DNA Test is also going on for this.

This key evidence comes over a month after her boyfriend Aaftab Poonawala was arrested for having killer her in May. He had chopped up her body into 35 pieces that he kept in a fridge and later dumped in the jungle near their rented flat in South Delhi’s Mehrauli over 18 days.

So far, on the evidence list, police had some of the knives allegedly used by Aaftab Poonwala, besides his “confession” that is not directly valid evidence. However, materials recovered through such a confession — for which police also conducted lie-detection tests in him — can be presented as evidence to rebuild the sequence of events before and after the murder.

Though Aaftab Poonawala is alleged to have killed Shraddha Walkar on May 18 — after another yet argument in a relationship that had been toxic for long — the crime came to light gradually after her father went to the police in their hometown in Maharashtra sometime in October.

Vikas Walkar, father of Shraddha Walkar had not been in touch with her as he was upset over her inter-faith (Hindu-Muslim) relationship with Aaftab Poonawala. Having met over a dating app, the couple lived together for some months in their hometown Vasai near Mumbai before shifting to Delhi only in May this year

Vikas Walkar recently held a press conference and allege Maharashtra Police had been lax when she had reported being assaulted by him back in 2020. Police have said she had later made a written submission asking for no action to be taken as they had struck a compromise.
