The police have apprehended accused Anuj Sharma, the deceased’s nephew.
It should be emphasised that the accused and other family members had reported his aunt’s disappearance to the police.
According to media reports, blood streaks had frozen on the kitchen walls following the murder. While the accused was attempting to remove the tension, his sister noticed him and notified the family members.
This was then reported to the police by family members. The police were examining the matter as a missing person case, but the latest revelation shocked everyone.
The Shraddha Walker murder case recently stunned the country, with Aftab Amin Poonawalla accused of killing his live-in partner Shraddha Walkar, slicing her body into 35 pieces, and dumping them in various locations across Delhi.
Poonawalla was arrested on November 12 and is being held in Tihar Jail.
Walkar and Poonawalla first met on the dating app ‘Bumble’ in 2018.
