Police in Delhi have arrested a man on charges of killing his live-in partner, chopping her body into 35 pieces, and disposing off the body parts at different places in and around the city.'To get more news about uplive top up, you can visit official website.

In a harrowing tale of betrayal and subterfuge, the accused, a trained chef, evaded detection for six months, continued to live in the house they shared and was only arrested early Saturday after details of the killing and its grisly aftermath came to light during his interrogation.??

Aaftab Amin Poonawala, and the deceased, Shraddha Walkar(28) had met each other through an online dating application. Later, they started working at a call centre in Mumbai and fell in love, said Delhi police officials.

The couple shifted to Delhi and started living at a rented apartment in the Chhatarpur area when their families refused to accept their relationship, Mehrauli police told news agency ANI.On May 18, the couple had a fight, and the accused strangled her in a fit of rage and then chopped her body into 35 pieces, they said.
Poonawala told the police that the idea of chopping her body into pieces was inspired by "Dexter", an American crime TV series.
He not only bought the fridge to preserve the body parts but also stocked incense sticks and room fresheners to suppress the foul smell emanating from the corpse.

Later he started disposing off the body pieces at different locations in and around Delhi during night hours.According to police officials, 13 body parts were found after the accused pinpointed the areas where he had thrown them, but only after their forensic examination, it can be confirmed if they belong to the victim.

They are yet to find the murder weapon.

For the next few weeks after the murder, Poonawala allegedly interacted with the woman's friends using her social media accounts so as to not arouse any suspicion. Walkar was not talking to her family as they had objected to their relationship.

Moving on with his life as if nothing happened, the accused continued to live in the same place where they had shifted in May after moving from Mumbai.

The victim's father in Mumbai filed a complaint when one of her friends informed him in September that Walkar's phone had been unreachable for two months and Poonawala claimed that they had parted ways some time back.

Ankit Chauhan, Additional DCP-I, South district, said the woman was not on talking terms with her family due to their differences over her relationship with Poonawala.The complaint by the victim's father alleged that Poonawala used to beat Walkar on several occasions and that she had informed her family about it earlier.

"The woman's father called the accused up but was told that the couple had parted ways sometime back. Unable to contact his daughter, the man then filed a missing complaint," Chauhan said.After receiving the complaint, Mumbai Police traced her last location to Delhi and also called Poonawala whose contradictory statements raised suspicion, prompting them to rope in Delhi Police.
