New Delhi: The Delhi Police will take Aftab Amin Poonawalla, an accused in the Shraddha murder case, for another round of polygraph test on Monday at the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in Rohini in the national capital.
The polygraph test held on Sunday could not be completed, despite Aaftab being taken to the FSL office for three days.
For the first time for a polygraph on Tuesday evening and after his “ill health,” the test on Wednesday was deferred to Thursday. He was again subjected to a third session on Friday.
The second session of the test, which was to be held on Wednesday was deferred after Poonawala reportedly “fell ill”. The second and third sessions were conducted on Thursday and Friday.
His polygraph could not be conducted on Friday also, Delhi Police had said.
“Polygraph test of the accused Aaftab Amin in Mehrauli police station case FIR No 659/22 under section 365/302/201 IPC could not be held today,” said Sagar Preet Hooda, IPS, Special Commissioner of Police, Law and Order, Zone II on Friday.
On Thursday, Delhi Police sources informed that Aaftab underwent a Perceptual Ability Test (PAT), which is a psychological analysis test, at the Rohini lab.
“Accused has been behaving very normally and smoothly from the beginning. So, it was important to get his polygraph and narco tests done. This is a long process. Even if our custody ends, the narco test could also be done in judicial custody,” said a Delhi Police source.
How Aftab Murdered Shraddha
In a spine-chilling incident in Delhi, the accused, Aftab, was in a live-in relationship with a girl named Shraddha from Mumbai.
Aftab killed Shraddha and chopped off his body parts, dumping them in the Mehrauli forest on May 18, after the two had a fight. The accused used to go out around 2 a.m. every day to dump the body parts.
