Apart from 100 witnesses, forensic and electronic evidence has become the basis of the draft chargesheet, sources said.

About 8 months ago, 27-year-old Shraddha Walkar was brutally murdered by her partner Aaftab Amin Poonawala, the gory details of which left the entire country horrified. Terrifying events continued to emerge that revealed how the accused killed Shraddha in Delhi’s Chhatarpur area on May 18 last year, then cut the body into several pieces and spread them around the forest area of Mehrauli.

New developments on Sunday said the Delhi Police had drawn up a 3,000-page charge sheet against Poonawala. Apart from 100 witnesses, forensic and electronic evidence has been taken as the basis of the draft chargesheet, sources said.

A mitochondrial DNA report of the samples found in the Mehrauli forest area has been sent for testing. Earlier, police accused Aaftab of giving misleading answers to questions. During the preliminary investigation, it was found that Shraddha’s last place was in Delhi.

Delhi Police is likely to send the charge sheet by the end of January, according to an ANI report. According to sources, legal experts are probing the draft chargesheet prepared by the Delhi Police.

Earlier on Wednesday, Shraddha’s father Vikas Walkar met Mira Bhayandar-Vasai Virar Superintendent of Police Madhukar Pandey and demanded action against the cops who apparently failed to act promptly on two complaints.

According to Vikas, Shraddha had filed a complaint with the Tulinj police in 2020 accusing Poonawala of abusing and assaulting her, while he himself had approached the Manikpur police after his daughter went missing last year .

Both the police stations, which come under the purview of the MBVV, did not act swiftly on the complaints, as it had alleged earlier, according to a PTI report.

Notably, the police on January 4 said that hair and bone samples recovered by them from a forest area in south Delhi’s Mehrauli matched those of Shraddha.
