AFTAB Amin Poonawalla, the accused in the gruesome Shraddha Walker murder case, who was arrested recently, has admitted to being high on marijuana on the day of the murder, police sources, as per the news agency ANI claimed.
As per Delhi police sources, the 28-year-old accused during questioning told the police that on May 18, he had an argument with Shraddha over managing household expenses and bringing some stuff from Mumbai to Delhi.
