Delhi murder: Shraddha Walkar's 2020 letter to cops says Aaftab 'blackmails me to kill and cut me in pieces'
New Delhi/IBNS: Shraddha Walkar, who has been allegedly killed by her live-in partner Aaftab Ameen Poonawala, had written to the police in 2020 fearing over her murder by her boyfriend, media reports said.
In a letter to the police at Tilunj in her hometown Vasai, Maharashtra, Shraddha, as investigators revealed, had said Aaftab "scares me and blackmails me that he will kill me, cut me up in pieces and throw me away".
The local police said Shraddha in a following letter informed them that her issues with Aaftab were sorted after his parents spoke to them.
Shraddha had asked police to refrain from taking any action against the accused.
Aaftab, who had met his partner Shraddha Walkar in an online dating app, moved together to a place in Delhi's Mehrauli in May this year.
Aaftab reportedly killed her after an argument broke out between the two on May 18.
Being inspired by the television show Dexter, the accused then bought a saw and a 300-litre refrigerator to store the 35 pieces for 18 days.
Aaftab, who is reportedly cooperating with police, on Tuesday said he killed Shraddha in the "heat of the moment".
