Expressing his sorrow over the murder of his daughter, Shraddha Walker’s father on Thursday said that he had forbidden her from being in a relationship with Aaftab Poonawalla (now accused in the case), however, she did not listen to him.
The father of the deceased, Vikas Madan Walker, said that Shraddha considered Aaftab a right man, which is why she did not listen to his advice of not being in a relationship with him. Speaking to ANI, the deceased’s father said that he is confident of getting justice after the Delhi Police is diving deep into the investigation.
“Delhi Police realised that Aaftab sometimes lies and sometimes speaks the truth. So, they applied for the Narco test. I feel I’m about to get justice. He should be hanged,” he said.
He said that he felt that Aaftab has been lying all along the investigation, while also doubting why the accused confessed to his crime right away.
“I have been feeling since the beginning that Aaftab has been lying all along. I said this firstly to Mumbai Police and then to Delhi Police. He confessed right away, I doubted even this. He was confusing us with his lies. I told the Mumbai Police repeatedly but I don’t know why did they believe that he was telling the truth. Mumbai Police was working according to him. I could not argue much. It is their system,” he said.
The father said Aaftab would have erased all the evidence during the six months after committing the murder on May 18.
“He has a vicious mind which has erased all the evidence in 5-6 months. So, the police will have a problem bringing out the truth. I did not think initially that Aftab could do something like this. However, I had still forbidden Shraddha from having any relationship with him, but she did not listen to me. She considered Aftab right,” he said.
“I will not rest until he is hanged,” the father added.
