In its notice, DCW has asked police whether the boy, live-in partner of
the girl, was operating alone or did he take someone’s help.

The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested a man, who murdered his live-in
partner in Mehrauli area and chopped the body into 35 pieces before
dumping them at various locations across the city.
The accused, Aftab Ameen Poonawalla, had strangled Shradhha on May 18.
As per sources, he then chopped her body into 35 pieces and bought a
new fridge to store them and threw them at various locations in a
period of 18 days.
To avoid any suspicion, he used to leave the house with a body part in
a polybag at 2 a.m.
“The matter came to light on November 8, when the missing woman’s
father approached Delhi Police after she stopped responding to calls,”
“This is one of the most shocking cases that I have seen during my
tenure and I am surprised at the audacity of this man. He chopped her
off into 35 pieces and disposed of the body parts daily at various
places. Strong action should be taken against him,” DCW chief Swati
Maliwal wrote on Twitter.
