The prime accused in the ghastly murder that has shaken India, Aaftab Amin Poonawala on Tuesday told a Delhi court that murdered his girlfriend in the “heat of the moment”.
The Saket court today extended the police custody of Aftab Poonawala to four more days after he was produced before the court via video conferencing in a special hearing. Aaftab was produced before the Saket court here after his five-day police custody expired.
“What happened that happened in heat of the moment,” Aaftab told the court. Aaftab also said that he is cooperating in the investigation.
He further told the court that he is having difficulty in recalling the incident. The accused allegedly strangled and then chopped to pieces the body of his live-in partner Shraddha Walker in May this year. The Delhi Police has also moved a lower court seeking permission to conduct a polygraph test on Poonawala.
