DNA test confirms bones found in forest belong to Shraddha Walkar

New Delhi: In a major revelation in the brutal Shraddha Walkar murder case, the DNA extracted from bone pieces recovered in the Mehrauli forest area matched with samples of the victim’s father, Delhi Police said on Thursday.

The police recovered 13 bone pieces from the area while searching for Walkar’s body parts. She was allegedly strangled and her body sawed into 35 pieces and disposed of in various parts of the national capital by her live-in partner Aaftab Amin Poonawala.

“The police have received the DNA report of the bones found. The DNA of the bones matches with the DNA samples of Walkar’s father,” a source said.

The bone samples were sent for DNA analysis to the Central Forensic Science Laboratory.

The report of Poonawala’s polygraph test was submitted to the police by the forensic sciences lab on Wednesday.
