Aftab Amin Poonawala, the suspect in the national capital's Shraddha Walkar murder case, tried to deceive and defraud.
The Delhi and Mumbai police in the early stages of the investigation prior to his arrest on November 12.
Aftab Poonawala, a 28-year-old male, attempted to cover up Shraddha's murder by destroying all tangible proof.
However, police were able to locate him thanks to the digital evidence, which enabled them to find the truth.
Aftab informed the Delhi Police that his live-in partner (Shraddha) fled the residence on May 22 following a fight when they first began looking into the Shraddha murder case.
How Aftab Poonawala's Munder was executed
Aftab claimed that Shraddha left the house with just her phone and left the rest of her belongings in their apartment. Furthermore, he asserted that he attempted to call her but was unable to do so.
Aftab claimed that he had given up calling her after several tries and had not kept in touch with her.
When the authorities checked the call logs for him and Shraddha and tracked their whereabouts, he was found to be lying.
Aftab transferred Rs 54,000 from Shraddha's account after her murder.
The couple's bank statement, which was obtained by Delhi Police, showed that Rs 54,000 was transferred from Shraddha's net banking account app to Aftab's account on May 26.
Given that Aftab had earlier informed the police that Shraddha had been out of communication since May 22 and that he had not spoken to her, this strengthened the police case and exposed his fabrications.
It's interesting to note that the Mehrauli Police Station in south Delhi ended up being the location of the bank transfer that happened on May 26.
