By Arvind Ojha: The polygraph test of accused Aaftab Amin Poonawala, who killed his 27-year-old live-in partner Shraddha Walkar and dismembered her body, will take place tomorrow, November 23. The Delhi Police has taken Aaftab to Delhi Rohini area for the test.

Earlier in the day, a Delhi court allowed Delhi Police to go ahead with a polygraph test to unravel the murder mystery. Separately, another court extended Aaftab's police custody by four more days.


A polygraph test is a non-invasive technique unlike the narco test. In a polygraph test, no medicine is used. In this, the accused is wired to a machine and questions are asked to him/her about the matter related to any case or incident.

The variation in the graph when the subject answers the questions are mapped to draw a conclusion.

The 28-year-old Aaftab strangled his live-in partner Shraddha and sawed her body into 35 pieces which he kept in a fridge for almost three weeks at his residence in South Delhi's Mehrauli locality.

He later disposed of her body parts one after another across the national capital over several days.
