Shraddha Murder: Delhi High Court rejects PIL seeking transfer of investigation to CBI, imposes costs

It was further stated that as per statements made by the Delhi Police to the media, the accused will be taken to five different states in furtherance of the investigation.

Hence, the case was “inter-state” and beyond the territorial jurisdiction of Delhi Police, the lawyer claimed.

The macabre murder case involves a couple who had allegedly met on mobile dating app Bumble and subsequently entered into a live-in relationship. They were initially based out of Mumbai before shifting to Delhi early this year.

According to the police, on May 18 this year, after a quarrel between the couple in a rented flat in Mehrauli, the accused strangulated the victim, chopped her body into 35 pieces, stored it in a fridge and later dumped the parts in different areas of the city over the next 18 days.
