Earlier this week, information about the gruesome murder came to light. Aaftab was detained by police after they filed a case against him and forced a confession out of him. However, because the accused continually revising his allegations, investigators are having difficulty finding relevant evidence.

Shraddha's friends and relatives claim that the two used to argue frequently over getting married. Aaftab murdered her on May 18 after a heated disagreement between them. He bought a saw and a 300-litre refrigerator the next day.
