Delhi Court has given permission to Delhi Police to conduct a narco test on the Shraddha Walker accused Aaftab Amin Poonawala on December 1.
Special CP (law and order) Sagar Preet Hooda had earlier today said that Delhi Police will seek permission from the court for the test.
The Saket court has allowed the plea of Delhi Police on December 1.
Sources say Aaftab Poonawala may have started destroying evidence pertaining to the killing of his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar after he received a call from the Manikpur police station seeking the whereabouts of the Vasai girl who was reported missing by her father Vikas Walkar in October. Vikas was alerted by her friend Laxman Nadar who had not heard from Shraddha for more than three months.
Aaftab disposed of Shraddha’s mobile phone after the Manikpur police called him for questioning following her father’s complaint, sources said. He threw her phone in Bhayandar creek when he came to Vasai after being summoned by the police, sources said. He had also thrown away her sim card so that her last location could not be pinned. The police have still not been able to recover the phone.
