Delhi Police may ask dating app Bumble if Aftab Poonawala met another woman before murdering Shraddha Walkar | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: In a major development in the Shraddha Walkar murder case, the Delhi Police is likely to write to the dating app Bumble to find out the details of women who visited accused Aaftab Ameen Poonawala in his house when the body was still in the refrigerator, news agency ANI reported on Tuesday.
Police are looking at the possibility that any of these women could be a reason behind this killing.
The accused, 28-year-old food blogger from Mumbai, allegedly strangled his 26-year-old live-in partner at their house in south Delhi, cut the body into 35 pieces, stored them in a refrigerator and disposed of them over 18 days at various places in the dead of night, according to police.
The crime didn’t come to light for six months and would have remained hidden for longer but for a friend of the woman in Mumbai who raised an alarm about her whereabouts which alerted her father — whom the woman had alienated over her relationship — and finally, put the cops on the trail of the killer.
Aaftab was finally arrested on November 11 by Delhi Police at his flat in Chhatarpur area on May 18 this year.
He had once trained as a chef and was adept at cutting meat. The cops said that once he had strangled Shraddha in a fit of rage, he used a meat cleaver on the body, unfolding an elaborate plan to evade suspicion and cover his tracks. Out every night at 2am, he even fed the body parts to stray animals hoping to destroy evidence.
In a bid to stave off any suspicion, according to police, Aaftab used to chat with Shraddha’s friends through her Instagram account.
