Aaftab Ameen Poonawala is likely to undergo a narco test at Ambedkar Hospital on Monday, according to senior Delhi police officials and officials of the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL). An FSL crew will be present for the test. Aaftab received a medical examination today, and it was determined that he is healthy.

According to reports, by performing a narcoanalysis test on the accused Aaftab Poonawala, Delhi Police seeks to solve the Shraddha Walkar murder case. The test may be administered with the court's approval, and Aaftab has agreed to it.

Aaftab is accused of strangling the 27-year-old Shraddha, then dismembering her body and dispersing it over different parts of Delhi after nearly 20 days in the freezer.
