Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday mentioned that Delhi Police and prosecution will guarantee “strict punishment” to the accused in minimal attainable time within the Shraddha Walkar homicide case.
“I have my eyes on the entire case. I just want to tell the people of the country that whosoever has done this, through law and through courts, Delhi Police and prosecution will ensure strict punishment in the minimum time,” he mentioned on the Times Now Summit right here.
Shah mentioned there isn’t a lack of coordination between Delhi and Mumbai police.
“But the letter that has come to fore, Delhi Police has no role in it. In a police station in Maharashtra, Shraddha had given a letter that her body will be cut into pieces and about receiving death threats… No action was taken on it there…There will be probe on it there. At that time we did not have our government… Whosever is responsible, strict action will be taken,” the house minister mentioned.
Mumbai BJP chief Ashish Shelar had on Wednesday questioned the alleged failure of Maharashtra Police in taking robust motion on a grievance filed by slain name centre worker Walkar in November 2020 wherein she acknowledged her live-in companion Aaftab Poonawala had tried to kill her.
Poonawala allegedly strangled his live-in companion Shraddha Walkar (27) and sawed her physique into 35 items, which he saved in a 300-litre fridge for nearly three weeks at his residence in south Delhi’s Mehrauli earlier than dumping these throughout town over a number of days previous midnight. He was arrested by Delhi Police on November 19.
To a query on the necessity of getting anti-conversion legal guidelines within the nation, Shah mentioned such legal guidelines have already been made within the BJP-ruled states.
“In Gujarat, I can tell you in detail. We have it (anti-conversion law) and we are implementing it strictly as well… It is for state legislatures to decide on it (such legislations),” he mentioned.
