A man in Delhi, India chops his live-in partner into 35 pieces and stored them in the fridge. He stored the pieces of her body in the fridge before decomposing them in the forest.
Police claim to have recovered 13 pieces so far following the investigation. The 28-year-old boy strangulated his partner in their home before chopping her into pieces. According to the details, he used a saw for this heinous activity. It took him three months to decompose her body in the forest. For three months, he played tricks so as not to let anyone doubt him in the neighborhood.
Aftab Poonawala continued to live in the same house for six months after he killed his partner Shraddha Walkar, 26, where they had decided to start a new life after eloping.
Aftab Amin Poonawalla, girlfriend Shraddha Madaan, strangled her, chopped her body into pieces, preserved in refrigerator, then dumped at various locations. Moved towards the next possible target.
End of a cute secular love story.

Getting irritated if “Muslim” is associated with the woke murderer #AftabPoonawalla?
They’ll also feel the same, when you irritatingly use “Hindu” or “Upper Caste” identity for the criminals, thugs or rapists.

The heinous activity was exposed last week when Shraddha’s father registered a missing complaint in Mumbai. Police arrested Aftab Poonawala and upon sustained questioning, he admitted to killing Shraddha on the suspicion of having an affair. He was arrested on the night of November 11 and remained in the police remand for five days. Shraddha had eloped from her home to live with Aftab, states one report. She used to regularly post her photos with Aftab on her social media to show her family. Her family went suspicious after pictures from her account stopped appearing.
Police reports claim both were dating each other since 2019 when they were working in a call center. They met through a dating app. They decided to elope to Delhi after both families disapproved of them living together. Ever since they started dating each other, they used to have frequent fights and suspected each other of infidelity.
Three days after moving to Delhi on May 15, the couple argued again, and in a fit of rage, Aftab strangulated Shraddha with his hands. He kept the body inside the Chattarpur flat for two days and then started to chop it into pieces using a saw he had kept in the house,” the Additional DCP said. He added that Aftab bought a fridge from a local shop to store body parts.

Aftab Poonawalla chopped his girlfriend into 35 pieces & placed them in a freezer. I do not know whether he was inspired by software engineer Rajesh Gulati in Dehradun who chopped his wife's body into 70 pieces, stashing the parts in a freezer in 2010.

Aftab planned to carefully dispose of her body parts in phases to avoid suspicion. He worked as a chef before joining the call center in Mumbai and that is why he had the expertise in chopping. He cleaned up all the blood with acid and disinfectant to ensure that there were no bloodstains in the house. He mostly stayed inside his house and ordered food from outside, which he kept inside the same fridge,” the officer said.
“He knew that over time the flesh will start smelling, so he used room fresheners and incense sticks every day. He hatched a plan to dispose of the body parts in the nearby forest. He used to wrap the body parts in a plastic bag, put them inside a backpack, and around 2 a.m., he used to walk to the forest and throw the packet,” said the officer. The search history of Aftab show he searched how to remove blood marks and destroy evidence.
