If those pieces are of a human body, the officials will match them with the DNA of Shraddha’s father.
New Delhi: The murder of a 26-year-old woman, whose live-in partner cut her body into 35 pieces and thrown in different locations in the national capital, is getting murkier after the police detained a friend of the couple for questioning.

A joint team of police and CBI officials took Poonawalla to Mehrauli forest area to recover the remains of Shraddha’s body. Immediately after Poonawalla’s arrest, the police collected ten suspected human body parts.
