Mumbai (Maharashtra): In yet another twist in the sensational Shraddha Walkar case that shook the nation, a letter that Shraddha wrote at the Tulinj police station in Maharashtra’s Palghar, in 2020 has surfaced.
In the letter, she alleged that Aaftab Poonawala, the accused in her murder, had beaten her and threatened to kill her.
The letter in question has reportedly been shared by Shraddha’s neighbour in Vasai with whom Shraddha had gone to file the complaint.
The Maharashtra police have confirmed that the deceased had written a complaint letter on November 23, 2020, at the Tulinj police station.
The Maharashtra police also confirmed the authenticity of the said complaint shared by the neighbour.
In the complaint letter, Shraddha said that she “did not have the guts to go to the police” because Aaftab had threatened to kill her.
However, she added that Aaftab tried to kill her on the day she was writing the letter, and he also threatened to kill her and cut her into pieces and throw her away.
“It’s been six months he has been hitting me,” the letter read.
The letter further claimed that Aaftab’s parents were aware that he beat her up and that he tried to kill her.
“I lived with him till date as we were supposed to get married anytime soon and had the blessings of his family. Henceforth, I am not willing to live with him. So any kind of physical damage should be considered coming from him as he has been blackmailing me to kill me or hurt me whenever he sees me anywhere,” the letter read.
The letter surfaces a day after Aaftab on Tuesday told a Delhi court that he murdered his girlfriend in the “heat of the moment”.
Meanwhile, a court-sanctioned polygraph test on Aaftab was initiated in the national capital on Tuesday.
The assistant director of the Forensic Science Laboratory, Rohini, Sanjeev Gupta said the process of conducting a polygraph test on Aaftab has begun and the report will be out in a week’s time.
