The investigation into the murder of Shraddha Walkar – allegedly by her boyfriend Aaftab Poonawala – is 80 per cent complete, advocate Sanjay Lao told the Delhi High Court Tuesday. Arguing against a petition seeking transfer of the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation, Delhi Police’s standing counsel (criminal) Lao said the petitioner could not dictate such terms.

The court indicated its agreement with Lao and dismissed the petition – calling it a ‘publicity interest litigation’ and imposing costs on the petitioner.The court also pointed out that it could not function as ‘a monitoring agency (to) look into the probe carried out by the police’.

Lao’s submission to the court on the progress of the investigation comes as Delhi Police make steady progress in building a case against the accused, who this morning told a lower court his actions were ‘in the heat of the moment’.

Poonawala’s lawyer also argued his client – who will face two lie detector tests – a polygraph and a narco analysis – had ‘fully co-operated’ with police, who have been given four days additional custody while they track down more evidence.
