DNA report confirms bones recovered in Delhi’s Mehrauli forest are Shradha Walkar’s

26-year-old victim Shraddha Walkar

New Delhi: Some of the remains of the body parts recovered from forests in Mehrauli and Gurugram belonged to Shraddha Walkar, the Delhi Police confirmed on Thursday.

Special Commissioner of Police Law and Order, Sagar Preet Hooda, said, “Police have received DNA and polygraph test reports from Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL). These reports will help us further in the investigation.”

He further said that these body parts will now be sent for post-mortem examination.

A total of 13 decomposed bones and part of a jaw were collected from the Mehrauli forest and were believed to be of the 27-year-old woman.

CFSL examined the 13 bones and traces of blood found in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom of the house, knife, clothes, mobile and laptop recovered from the house.

Poonawala, who has been arrested based on his confession of killing Walkar and chopping her body into 35 pieces to dispose it, was arrested last month and is currently lodged in Tihar jail.

On December 9, he was produced before a court via video conferencing and his judicial custody was further extended by 14 days.
