On Thursday, the Delhi police also seized five knives from the residence of the defendant, Aaftab Amin Poonawala. Police told PTI that they have not yet found the saw that was reportedly used by Poonawala to sever Walker's body.

According to officials in the police department, the knives that were found in Aaftab Amin Poonawala's apartment in Chhatarpur have been submitted to the Forensic Science Laboratory for testing to determine if they were used in the crime.

The culprit, a professional chef who was found after eluding authorities for six months, was apprehended earlier this month when details of the murder and its gruesome aftermath emerged during his questioning. Meanwhile, Poonawala underwent a marathon polygraph test of nearly eight hours on Thursday at the Forensic Science Laboratory in New Delhi.

Poonawala had told the police during the investigation that he killed his live-in partner after a quarrel over marriage and the idea of chopping her body into 35 pieces was inspired by “Dexter", an American crime TV series.
