Mehrauli murder: Police conduct fresh search across Delhi | India | Tech Reddy
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday conducted fresh searches across the city, in the forest areas of Chhattarpur and the area where Mehrauli murder case accused Aftab Poonawala and Shraddha Waqar lived, officials said.
As his custodial remand expired on Tuesday, the police intensified searches at flats in Mehrauli and Poonawalla to recover the remains of Walker’s body and the murder weapon.
According to official sources, a Delhi Police team is also searching the forest area near the office in Gurgaon where Poonawala used to work.
A separate team visited the flat where they lived to collect evidence as part of the ongoing investigation, police officials said.
While Poonawalla’s narco test has been approved, investigators are running against time to conduct it.
He will be examined at Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital in Rohini, likely on Monday, with Poonawala’s five-day police custody ending the next day.
Poonawala strangled Walker to death and cut her body into 35 pieces which he kept in a 300 liter fridge at his home in Mehrauli for about three weeks and dumped across the city in the middle of the night for several days.
Delhi Police on Friday sent teams to Maharashtra, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh to look for evidence in the case.
According to officials, after leaving Mumbai, Walker and Poonawalla traveled to several places, including Himachal Pradesh, and police are inspecting these places to see if any developments during those trips prompted Poonawalla to kill his partner.
