Police Found Body Parts of Shraddha, will Match with DNA of Her Family

New Delhi: Officials of Delhi Police on Sunday revealed that they found parts of the skull, jaw, and other bones from the forest area in Mehrauli. The recovered parts have been sent to a forensic lab to ascertain if they belong to murdered 27-year-old Shraddha Walkar.

The police team on Sunday also searched a pond and dense forest area in Maidangarhi where accused Aftab Poonawalla might have dumped 35 parts of Shraddha’s body parts after cutting it into 35 parts. Aftab Amin Poonawala had also admitted to burning pictures of Walkar after murdering her, sources said.

“After killing Walkar on May 23, he tried to destroy all the evidence and burnt her photos too,” said the source.

The accused Poonawala had strangled his live-in partner Sradha Walkar in May and then chopped her body into many pieces for easier disposal. “Following up on the disclosures by Poonawala, various combing operations have been carried out at various places, including some forest areas, from where severed bones have been seized,” a senior police official said.

Blood samples of the father and his brother have been taken for DNA analysis to ascertain that the bones belong to Shraddha. The DNA test will take 15 days to confirm whether the body parts found in the forest belong to the victim or not.

“Police teams are also conducting search operations to recover the missing skeletal parts. Several inter-disciplinary teams are working round the clock, to find out anomalies and refine the versions and the objectives stated by the accused,” said the official. According to the police, the couple’s rented house in South Delhi’s Chhatarpur area has been closely inspected by the crime team and forensic experts.

“They have also been sent for forensic recovery of data to ascertain whether the digital devices seized from the scene of crime contained any incriminating evidence,” the official said.

The police official said that every disclosure of the accused is being assessed based on acceptable evidence value.
