Shraddha murder case: A wakeup call! Bumble and other dating apps that led to heinous crimes

Published Date:

The horrifying facts of Shraddha Walkar’s murder have made a clear connection to the dating app Bumble, where the victim first met her assassin, Aftab Poonawala. In their apartment, Shraddha was killed by Aftab, who then chopped her body into 35 pieces.

Shraddha and Aftab were connected on Bumble and had been dating since 2019. After a contentious dispute between the two, Aftab murdered her by strangling her. He kept Shraddha’s body in the refrigerator, and now it is claimed that Aftab began bringing women into the residence while her body was still in the fridge.

Here are some more crimes that occurred through online dating platforms:

Under the guise of marriage, a Tinder match raped a girl.

After making a fraudulent marriage proposal, a man was jailed on charges of raping a girl. On Tinder, the two had found each other and begun dating. Ten years in prison were imposed on the man.

Girl from Jaipur kills her Tinder match after abducting him.

According to reports, a female from Jaipur abducted and murdered Dushyant Sharma, the person she met on Tinder. After extorting Rs 3 lakh from Sharma’s family as a ransom, the woman had dumped Sharma’s body stashed in a luggage on the Delhi-Jaipur highway.

Indian Tinder scammer

A 57-year-old woman was contacted by a con artist through a dating app, who gradually borrowed money from her while making her believe he was wealthy. Later, he took a loan from her for as much as Rs. 3.5 lakh, he also swiped her gold chain and vanished.

In Delhi, an IPL betting agent strangles a woman.

A man in Delhi killed a woman by strangling her to death after they met online. She had been forced to drink, and the man later strangled her while robbing her of jewels and cash worth Rs. 50 lakh. He was a bookmaker for the IPL and was deeply in debt.

The following are some examples of common storylines or suspicious behaviours that scammers may use to gain trust and sympathy in order to trick you in an unfair way:

  • Requests any type of financial help frequently, due to an unexpected personal need.
  • Claims to be a citizen of the United States, although they are actually residing, working, or travelling overseas.
  • Claims to have children and a recent divorce.
  • Unexpected disappearance from the website followed by a reemergence under a different identity.
  • Provides unclear responses to certain inquiries.
  • Excessively talkative and romantic in your communications up front.
  • Pressures you to chat to people outside of the dating site or app or to give out your phone number.
  • Asks your home or workplace address while claiming to be giving you flowers or gifts.
  • Relates conflicting or inflated tales.
  • Despite using terrible vocabulary and grammar, he is well-educated.

Just listen your inner voice:

Whenever you feel uneasy, follow your gut feelings and don’t be afraid to end a date or stop communicating with the person. You shouldn’t worry about coming out as unpleasant because your date should realise that your safety comes first.
