Aaftab Amin Poonawala, who is suspected of killing his partner Shraddha Walkar, had a polygraph test ordered by the Delhi Police on Monday, according to the application. Tomorrow’s hearing before Metropolitan Magistrate Vijayshree Rathore is anticipated.

According to the Delhi Police’s appeal, Poonawala is misrepresenting the investigative agency, and as a result, a polygraph test should be performed to determine whether the answers to the police’s questions are accurate or not, according to court sources who spoke to Hindustan Times.

The concerned judge, Metropolitan Magistrate Aviral Shukla, declared that since Rathore had already heard the narcotics motion, she should also hear the polygraph application.

The Delhi court ordered Aaftab Poonawala to take a narcoanalysis test after the police said they discovered inconsistencies in his testimony.

Narco analysis, commonly referred to as truth serum, includes injecting a substance into the patient’s veins, such as sodium pentothal, scopolamine, or sodium amytal, to induce various phases of anaesthesia.

Information that would often not be revealed in the conscious state is more likely to be divulged as the person loses their inhibitions.

The horrifying murder occurred on May 18, and Poonawala is accused of chopping his 26-year-old partner Shraddha Walkar into 35 pieces and dispersing them over the city over a period of months. The couple reportedly quarrelled about money on the day of the homicide, which happened three days after they moved into the Chhattarpur apartment, according to Delhi Police.
