Saket Court allows police to conduct narco test on Aftab

Wednesday, 30 November 2022 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

A Saket court on Tuesday allowed the Delhi Police to conduct a narco test on Aftab Poonawalam who killed his live-in partner Shraddha Walker into 35 pieces before dumping in Mehrauli forest areas. The polygraph on Aftab has been completed and a report will be submitted soon.                   SR 

Abinash Kumar, Aftab’s counsel, said that the police had filed an application for taking Aftab to Forensic Science Lab, Rohini, on December 1 and December 5, which was allowed by the court. “The polygraph test on Aaftab has been completed today. It started last week. We are keeping this case on priority and the report (of the polygraph test to the police) will be given soon,” Sanjeev Gupta, FSL assistant director, said.


The court allowed the plea of Delhi police to produce the accused Aftab  before FSL Rohini from Tihar Jail for Narco and Polygraph test procedure from December 1 onwards.  According to Special CP Law and Order Sagar Preet Hooda, Delhi Police will seek permission from the court to conduct a narco test on December 1.


On Tuesday, Aftab  was brought for the fifth time to the FSL office amid high security, as on Monday the Delhi Police van carrying him was attacked by some sword-wielding men. Border Security Force (BSF) security has been deployed outside the FSL office.


Meanwhile, the Delhi Police Tuesday arrested two Hindu Sena members who allegedly attacked a police van which was taking murder-accused Aftab  from the forensic science laboratory (FSL) in Rohini to the Tihar jail. The accused have been booked for rioting with weapons and assaulting a public servant, they added. On Monday, fringe groups of people carrying swords attacked the police van carrying Aaftab when he was being taken to Tihar Jail from FSL after his polygraph test. The group of people also pelted stones at the police van. Two persons claimed to be from an outfit called Hindu Sena were detained for attacking the vehicle.


Sources said that the first session of the polygraph test was deferred after his "ill health". The second test session, which was to be held on November 23, was also deferred after Poonawala reportedly "fell ill".


The second and third sessions were conducted on November 25 and 26 respectively.
