According to sources, Delhi police have some videos and audio related to the case. Delhi police want to obtain a voice sample of Aaftab to examine that evidence.
The court said that the accused has no right to deny giving a voice sample. Therefore, he is directed to give a voice sample to the police.
The court directed that the accused would be taken to CFSL at CBI headquarters on Monday at 10 am.
Metropolitan magistrate Aviral Shukla extended the judicial custody of Aftab for the next 14 days. The next date of hearing is January 6, 2023.
Yesterday, the Saket court dismissed the bail plea of Aaftab Poonawala after he withdrew the same.
Aftab is in judicial custody after the police interrogation.
Aaftab is accused of strangling to death his live-in partner Shraddha and chopping her body into 35 pieces. He is also alleged to have preserved the chopped body parts in a refrigerator before dumping them in forested areas in Delhi and Gurugram.
Police had earlier said Aaftab, who confessed to killing Shraddha and chopping her body into 35 pieces, was giving misleading answers to questions.
