In another startling revelation in the Shraddha Murder case, it has come to the fore that Aftab Poonawala would burn her using cigarettes. Rajat Shukla, a friend of Shraddha, told ABP News that she had confided in a common friend about this in 2021.
When they came to know about this, a few of Shraddha’s friends went to Aftab’s house and threatened to register a police complaint. However, Shraddha wanted to give him one more chance.

Shraddha Walkar was strangled and killed by her live-in partner Aftab Amin Poonawala in their Chhatarpur flat in Mehrauli. He later sawed her body into 35 pieces and dumped them in various areas in the city.
Rajat said that there had been negligence on the part of the police in the whole matter. Shraddha had written to the police that he used to beat her and that she was in danger of life from Aftab. Despite this, the police did not take action against Aftab for 27 days. Shraddha withdrew her complaint against Aftab after 27 days. Expressing his anger on the matter, Rajat said that action should be taken against the police for such negligence.
