A New Delhi doctor who treated Aaftab Amin Poonawalla, accused of murdering his live-in partner in the most grisly manner, said Poonawalla had visited him in May, the same month when the woman was killed, for treating a knife wound.
Dr Anil Kumar recalled Poonawalla was very aggressive and restless when he had come to him for treatment and when he asked him about his injury, he claimed he got hurt while cutting fruit.
“In May, he came in the morning hours. My assistant told me that one person has come with an injury. When I saw him, I found it was not a deep injury but a superficial one,” said Kumar.
“The underline structure was intact. When I asked him how he sustained this injury, he replied it was while he was cutting fruit. I did not have any doubt as it was a small clean knife cut,” said Kumar.
He said 28-year-old Poonawalla was a very bold and confident person when he met him for the first time during the treatment.
“Two days ago, the police brought him to my hospital and asked whether I treated this guy. I recognised him and said yes. He was very aggressive and restless when he came for the treatment. He looked into my eyes while speaking. He was very bold and confident. He was speaking in English and told me he was from Mumbai and came to Delhi as the city has good opportunities in the IT sector,” Kumar said.
