Aftab Poonawala, who allegedly killed his girlfriend and chopped her body into pieces, will be made to undergo a narco-analysis test as he has been giving incorrect information to the police and trying to mislead investigation, sources have said.
A court in south Delhi’s Saket has given permission to do the narco test on Aftab Poonawala, sources said.
The police suspect he has been trying to mislead investigators by giving incorrect information about what exactly did he do with the phone of his girlfriend, Shraddha Walkar, and the saw that he used to cut the body in the macabre killing.
During questioning, Aftab Poonawala kept changing his answers, that he threw Shraddha Walkar’s mobile phone in Maharashtra, and another time he said he discarded the phone in Delhi.
A psychiatrist will also accompany the police team during the narco test, sources said. This test involves injecting a drug that causes the person to enter into various stages of anaesthesia, which induces a hypnotic stage that makes the person less inhibited and more likely to divulge information, which would usually not be revealed in the conscious state.
