Business News/ News / India/  Shraddha Walker murder case: Trial commences in Delhi's Saket court

Legal proceedings commence in the case of Shraddha Walker's murder, with Aftab Poonawala standing as the accused, as the trial commences at Delhi's Saket Court.

Shraddha Walker was allegedly killed by her live-in partner, Aftab Amin Poonawala, on May 18, 2022.

aftab Poonawala is accused of killing her girlfriend, Shraddha Walkar, and cutting her into 35 pieces to dispose of her body. Aaftab is alleged to have preserved the chopped body parts in a refrigerator before dumping them in the forests of Chhatarpur.

Shraddha Walker had filed a complaint that Aaftab had threatened to cut her into pieces and throw them away. Shraddha Walker had filed the police complaint against Aaftab Poonawala back in November 2020 at the Tulinj police station in Maharashtra’s Palghar.

The letter was shared by Shraddha Walker’s neighbour in Vasai with whom she had gone to the police station.

As reported by ANI, the process of recording statements from prosecution witnesses in the case has now begun.

Earlier in April, Delhi's Saket court issued an order in response to a plea filed by the Delhi Police against a channel and other channels. The plea sought to restrain these channels from sharing the content of the charge sheet, including digital evidence, in the Shraddha murder case. 

Earlier on April 10, Vikas Walker, the father of Shraddha Walker, expressed his demand for the involvement of Aftab's parents in the case, claiming that they have been deliberately concealed or kept away from scrutiny.

Reiterating his demand for the death penalty of Aftab Poonawalla, he said "He (Aftab) should be given the death penalty. He is guilty. He committed this crime with full planning. There are loopholes in the investigation and proceedings due to which the case is delayed. I have asked my lawyer to appeal for fast-track proceedings in the case."

Special public prosecutor (SPP) Amit Prasad said that the Delhi Police earlier approached the court on credible information that one of the media houses has accessed the audio-video evidence related to the Narco test and the Practo app.

"Delhi Police approached the court on credible information that one of the media houses has accessed the audio-video evidence related to Narco test and Practo app and is likely to disseminate the same today," Amit Prasad told ANI.
