‘Aftab told Shraddha as his wife while renting the flat’, reveals police

Shraddha Murder Case: Police on Friday claimed that her ‘live-in partner’ Aftab Amin Poonawalla, accused of brutally murdering, had introduced Shraddha Walker as his wife while looking for a house to rent near Mumbai. A local Mumbai police officer told that both of them were looking for a flat on rent in Vasai. During this, Aftab called Shraddha as his wife many times, although they were not married.

Aftab Amin Poonawala and Shraddha had rented a one-room flat in a building in Naigaon (East) in 2019, claiming to be a married couple. The police officer said that no police verification of the tenant was done as the housing society was not registered. However, police verification is required in many areas of Maharashtra.

‘was joined as wife’

The police officer said, "In the month of October 2020, they shifted to a rented one BHK (one bedroom-hall-kitchen) flat in Vasai (East) and Poonawalla again introduced Shraddha to the landlord as his wife. As documents to the landlord, Poonawalla had given his Aadhaar card along with details of his parents’ house in Vasai. However, the flat was rented in the name of Poonawala, while Walkar’s photograph was attested in the police verification document. The document had the seal of the Tulinj police.”

‘used to change houses every year’

The police officer told that he vacated the flat in Vasai in September 2021 and it is believed that he moved to another nearby building. A police officer told that after this he had moved to Delhi in March 2022 this year.
