As information pertaining to the gruesome Shraddha Walkar murder case continues to unfold, the Delhi police on Wednesday said that they may conduct accused Aaftab Poonawala’s brain mapping in circumstances if his polygraph and narco analysis results are inconclusive.
Talking to the Times of India, a police source said that the team may move the court to carry out a brain mapping of Poonawala. This comes a day after officials of the Forensic Science laboratory in Rohini conducted a few sessions of narco-analysis, leaving the major sessions for December 1.
The polygraph test of accused Aaftab has been concluded. As per the police, during the five sessions of the polygraph test, the accused showed no remorse while accepting his crime. During the test, the accused also confessed that he had chopped and dumped Shraddha’s body parts into the jungle, however, the police say that several discrepancies regarding the weapons used to chop off the body and the places where the body parts were disposed of have been determined.
Cops mentioned that Aaftab also confirmed dating several women. According to cops, Aaftab behaved normally during the polygraph session and told cops that he has already informed them about how he killed Shraddha to the cops.
Aaftab was brought to Forensic Science Laboratory’s (FSL) Delhi office on Tuesday amid high security, for his polygraph test, a day after he was attacked by weapon-wielding people outside the laboratory.
Talking to the investigating officers, Aaftab’s new girlfriend revealed on Wednesday that the accused gave her several gifts including a ring and perfume. Aaftab met her through the mobile dating application ‘Bumble’, police said. “He always seemed very normal and caring,” she told the police.
The woman, who is currently undergoing counseling, revealed she had no idea Shraddha’s body parts were kept there when she entered the Chhatarpur residence, according to news agency ANI. According to some reports, Aaftab gifted her a ring on October 12, that originally belonged to Shraddha.
he new girlfriend also informed the police that she had come to Aaftab’s flat twice in the month of October, but she had no inkling of Shraddha’s murder or about the presence of human body parts in the house. She said, “Aaftab never looked scared. He often used to tell me about his Mumbai home.”
Aaftab allegedly strangled Shraddha Walkar and cut her body into 35 pieces which he kept in a 300-liter fridge for almost three weeks at his residence in Mehrauli in south Delhi, before dumping them across the city over several days. He was arrested on November 12 and sent to five-day police custody, which was further extended by five days on November 17.
Meanwhile, the narco-analysis to be held on December 1 will focus on questions related to the disposal of weapons, Shraddha’s mobile phone, the reason why he dismembered the body into 35 pieces, and whether it was a planned murder in order to safeguard a secret, the police noted.
