In the latest development, Delhi Police have recovered weapons reportedly used by Aaftab Poonawala to chop Shraddha Walker's body part.
On Monday, Delhi police sources revealed that they had discovered some of the weapons used to chop Shraddha's body. As per the source, police have recovered Shraddha's ring, which Aaftab had given to his new female friend, a psychologist whom he befriended through the dating app Bumble and invited to his flat, as per reports.
According to reports, police are also interrogating Shraddha's father and recording his statement.
However, the police still needed to specify what weapons were recovered, where, or when they were discovered. Police officials have confirmed that Aaftab used the recovered weapons to chop Walker's body.
Aaftab has been lodged at Tihar jail number 4 for 13 days under judicial custody. CCTV cameras are watching him around the clock. His polygraph examination has been underway since 11:00 am at the Forensic Science Laboratory in Delhi's Rohini.
On Tuesday, he was taken for the first session of his polygraph test. He reportedly fell ill on Wednesday and was summoned for further sitting on Thursday and Friday.
Aaftab Poonawala allegedly told the Delhi police that he had murdered his live-in partner Shraddha six months ago in their Chhattarpur apartment. He then dismembered her body into 35 pieces, stored them in a refrigerator for three months, and dumped them in South Delhi and Gurugram.
Later, it was also revealed that Aaftab was dating another woman through the same dating app via which he met Shraddha; when Shraddha's body parts were stored in the freezer, the woman visited his apartment. The woman is a psychologist who has been questioned by the Delhi Police.
