A Delhi court on Thursday allowed the Delhi Police to conduct a narco analysis test on Mehrauli killing accused Aaftab Amin Poonawalla and question him for five more days in its custody.
The Delhi Police is likely to take Aaftab Amin Poonawala, an accused in the Mehrauli murder case, to Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand,
where he stayed with his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar, to establish the sequence of events leading to her brutal murder.
A city court on Thursday allowed the Delhi Police to conduct a narco analysis test on Mehrauli killing accused Poonawalla and question him for five more days in its custody.
The Delhi Police had sought further remand of the accused saying that the cops have to visit Parvati Valley in Himachal Pradesh to dig up more evidence.
The police also said that the Badarpur and the Chattarpur jungles in New Delhi are vast, and it would require time to unearth the parts of the body.
Police have also traced the garbage van in which Poonawala had disposed of his blood-stained clothes besides recovering an unpaid water bill of ₹300 and food bills.
The police told PTI that they have recovered body parts from four locations in the forest area. He had used a saw to chop the body parts
which he had allegedly bought from a shop on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon road. The police will also take him to that shop so that the shopkeeper can identify him.
There are also reports that the accused had charred his live-in partner's face to hide her identity.
