Shraddha Walkar murder: Father moves court seeking supply of audio-video, fast track hearing
New Delhi, March 25: Vijay Walkar, the father of Shraddha Walkar, who was murdered by her live-in partner Aftab Poonawalla last year, has asked for a supply of audio-video evidence, which was filed in the charge sheet. He has also urged that the case be heard in a time bound fast track manner.
The court allowed him to participate in the hearing through video conferencing. He had requested permission to attend the court hearing through video conference (VC) because he lives in Mumbai.
The plea was made before Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Manisha Khurana Kakkar, who is hearing arguments on the case.
The court has ordered the Delhi police to reply to the pleas by the next date. The hearing will resume on March 31.
On Saturday, the new counsel requested more time to argue the charge.
The court allowed counsel time and stated that this is the accused's final opportunity because he has changed his Counsel three times.
Shraddha was allegedly brutally murdered by accused Aftab Poonawala. Following the brutal murder, accused Aftab chopped the dead body into 35 pieces and attempted to dispose of the body parts in various regions of Delhi and surrounding areas.
It is claimed that there is an urgent need for expedited and time-bound justice in the aforementioned case, as we are all aware that the Indian legal system is currently burdened with a massive backlog of cases, resulting in considerable delays in the delivery of justice.
