They eloped, then he chopped her. How Indian predator got rid of live-in partner

The accused allegedly chopped her body into 35 pieces, bought a refrigerator and kept them in it.

In a case of a romance gone terribly wrong, a man strangled his girlfriend, chopped her into pieces and scattered her body parts across Delhi.

The victim, 26-year-old Shraddha Walkar, had been in a live-in relationship with Aaftab Amin Poonawala. They had eloped to Delhi after her parents objected to their being together.

However, things soured between the couple when Shraddha started pressing Aaftab for marriage. Little could she have imagined that her partner, reluctant to tie the knot, would put an end to things in such a horrifyingly ghastly way.

Perhaps the most incredible aspect of this grisly affair is that the murder did not see light for almost six months. The accused went around scot-free, till the victim's father lodged a missing persons report last week and the cops came knocking on his door.

“The two got together via a dating app in Mumbai. They were in a live-in relationship for three years and had shifted to Delhi. Soon after the two shifted to Delhi, Shraddha started pressurizing the man to marry her,” Additional DCP-I South Delhi Ankit Chauhan told ANI.

“The two quarrelled frequently and it used to get out of control. In this particular instance that occurred on May 18, the man lost his temper and strangled her,” said Chouhan.

“The accused told us that he chopped her into pieces and disposed of her parts in nearby areas in the jungle area of Chhatarpur Enclave. He has been arrested and investigation is going on,” added Chouhan.

The accused allegedly chopped her body into 35 pieces, bought a refrigerator and kept them in it. He later started disposing of the body pieces at different locations in and around Delhi during night hours for the next 18 days, said sources.

Sources further said, Aftab used to sleep every day in the same room where he had chopped the body after killing Shraddha. He used to see the face after keeping it in the fridge. Aftab had cleaned the fridge after disposing of the body parts.

Dexter, the inspiration

Sources said Aftab had relations with many girls even before Shraddha. Before committing the crime, he also watched many crime movies and web series, including the American crime drama series Dexter.

In September, the victim’s friend informed her family that there was no contact with Shradhha for the last two and a half months and her mobile number was also switched off. Her family also checked her social media accounts and found no updates during this period.

In November, the victim’s father Vikash Madan Walker, a resident of Palghar (Maharashtra), approached Mumbai police and lodged a missing person’s complaint.

During the initial investigation, the victim’s last location was found in Delhi, and on the basis of this, the case was transferred to Delhi police.
