Shraddha murder case investigation continues

Nagpur :

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Wednesday that why police action was not taken on Shraddha Walkar's complaint against Aftab Poonawalla in 2020, it will be investigated.

The BJP leader also said that if action had been taken at that time, he probably could have been saved.

Significantly, Poonawalla and Shraddha met through a dating app.

After this they started working together in a call center in Mumbai and the love affair between the two started from there.

Later he came to Delhi.

The two allegedly had an argument on May 18 over marriage, following which Poonawala killed Shraddha and cut her body into 35 pieces.

Poonawalla kept these pieces in a 300-litre fridge for about three weeks at his home in Mehrauli, south Delhi.

He kept going for several days at midnight to throw them in different areas of the city.

An official said on Wednesday that on November 23, 2020, Walkar had given a complaint at Tulinj police station in Palghar district that his live-in-partner Poonawala tried to kill him and feared that he would throw her into pieces.

"His (Poonawalla's) parents know that he used to beat me and tried to kill me," Walkar had told the police while talking to reporters after a program in Nagpur. Fadnavis, who is holding the charge of Home Ministry, said that he has read Walkar's Tahrir.

He said, “I have read it.

The letter is very serious.

We have to investigate why action was not taken on his complaint. "He said," I do not want to make allegations against anyone, but such incidents happen only when there is no action on receiving complaints.

It will be thoroughly investigated.
