He alerted Shraddha’s family about her mysterious disappearance, prompting them to approach the local police. Shraddha’s friend lived in Vasai, and he works in an IT firm. He had met Shraddha in junior college where they became friends. After junior college, they met occasionally, but during the Covid lockdown the circle of four-five college friends got revived, reported Indian Express.
For the unversed, Shraddha Walkar and her family also lived in Vasai, before her parents’ didn’t approve of her relationship with Aftab Poonawalla. Following her argument with her family she decided to settle down for a live-in relationship with her boyfriend in Delhi, who later confessed to have murdered her at the same house.
Previously, in June-July 2021, Shraddha’s friend shared that he had sent him a text message saying that Aaftab had been beating her and if she was not rescued, she would die. The friend also mentioned that he had rushed to her house and had seen her with bruises.
Reportedly, he even warned Aftab about filling a police complaint but the victim did not want to press charges and returned to Aftab two days later.
Later in May this year, the friend revealed that he communicated with Shraddha for the last time on Instagram. Weeks after her muder, the friend claimed, impersonated Shraddha and sent him messages from her phone saying she was alright.
“I was under the impression it was Shraddha who was texting me. But slowly she stopped replying to my messages and then stopped seeing my messages. Her phone was switched off. I found it unusual because she had called me from Himachal Pradesh and said she was ending things with Aaftab. She discussed job interviews. She had left her job and had a few interviews lined up. But she suddenly broke all communication with me,” Shraddha’s friend was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
“I then called Aaftab and said I know she was with you before she went cold. I said we will approach the police but he said do not go to the police, you know how Shraddha is and she will come back. He could not remember the date she left. I asked him how is this possible, you have been with her for four years. He told me he was also looking for her and would update me, but he never called or replied on her whereabouts,” he said. ALSO READ | SHOCKING! Man Chops Body Off Girlfriend And Live-In!

Shraddha’s friend who remains unnamed revealed the he had then contacted more than 10 of her close friends and realized that none had spoken to her since May-end. Elaborating on the unusual circumstances he continued, “It did not make sense that she was not in touch with any of her friends… In September, I contacted her brother and father who asked me to meet them. I explained everything to them and said they must approach the police. Her brother and father then started contacting all her friends, just like I did, and then approached the police.”
The Indian Express report also quoted another close friend of Shraddha, who recalled: “We stayed in the same building since the sixth standard and we went to college together. She came to stay with me after a fight with Aaftab in 2021. She had told her male friend that she would die that night if she was not rescued. But two days later, she went back since Aaftab threatened to harm himself.”
