NEW DELHI: Aaftab Poonawala, the primary suspect in the murder of Shraddha Walker, has made horrifying confessions while being questioned, according to the continuing inquiry.
After killing his live-in partner on May 18, Aaftab met the woman—a psychiatrist by profession—through a dating website.
The woman said in her police report that Aftab never displayed any signs of fear and frequently talked to her about his home in Mumbai.
For the uninitiated, Aaftaab killed his girlfriend by strangling her, then dismembered her body into 35 pieces and dumped them throughout Mehrauli. Here are 7 startling revelations his new partner made:
•The woman had been to the Chhatarpur apartment where Shraddha was twice strangled by Aaftab in October.
•She was unaware that Shraddha Walkar's body parts were stored in the freezer, notwithstanding Aaftab's claims.
•She claimed that she never had the impression that his mental state wasn't in the best condition because of the way he behaved, which seemed normal and even quite compassionate.
She also mentioned that Aaftab frequently gave her perfumes as gifts and that he had a collection of various perfumes and deodorants.
•Aaftab used to smoke a lot of cigarettes and roll them himself, but he frequently spoke of quitting smoking shortly.
•He loved all kinds of food and frequently ordered non-vegetarian dishes from various restaurants to have delivered to his house. He also enjoyed talking about how chefs in restaurants would garnish their dishes.
•Aftab had also given the woman a pricey fake ring. This ring, according to rumours, belongs to Shraddha.
According to investigators looking into the issue, Aaftab communicated with 15 to 20 girls via various dating websites. In the course of their investigation, the police tracked down Aftab's Bumble app history and discovered a girl who had gotten in touch with him on May 30 or about 12 days after Shraddha was killed.
In addition, according to police sources, Aaftab's new partner is receiving counseling because the news of the Shraddha murder case was discovered to have left her in a state of shock.
