The body of twenty-year-old Pallavi Vikamsey was found on the railway tracks in Central Mumbai. Pallavi was the daughter of ICAI president Nilesh Vikamsey.
The body of twenty-year-old law student Pallavi Vikamsey was found on the railway tracks in central Mumbai, a senior GRP official said on Thursday. Pallavi was the daughter of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) president Nilesh Vikamsey who is also a partner in Khimji Kunverji and Company, a leading audit firm.
Pallavi had gone missing while returning from a law firm at Fort in south Mumbai where she was doing her internship. She was last seen boarding a local train at CSTM station on Wednesday at around 6 pm, the official said.
When Pallavi did not return home her family members filed a missing complaint with MRA Marg police station, the official said.
The Indian Express reported that before leaving office on Wednesday evening, Pallavi texted her family, saying that she was going to end her life. The report quotes Sukhlal Varpe of the MRA Marg police station as saying, "She sent text messages to a few family members telling them that no one should be held responsible for her actions. She then switched off her cellphone. They began to search for her and when they couldn’t find her, they came to us."
Police had found the body of a girl on the tracks between Parel and Currey Road station on Thursday evening. On Thursday, Pallavi's relatives confirmed that it was her body, said a senior official.
"We found body of a woman on tracks between Parel and Currey road on Wednesday at around 7.30 pm. On Thursday, her relatives confirmed her as Pallavi Vikamsey," said DCP Samadhan Pawar, spokesperson of GRP (Central Railway).
A BMC employee on the same train, Geeta Gaikwad told Mumbai Mirror, "I was in the second class compartment but was facing the first class compartment in which she was travelling. She was leaning and looking outside... and then she suddenly fell." She added that no one was standing close to her to have pushed her.
The police said that the only belongings on the body was a ring on the victim's right hand and that her cellphone was not found on her body, according to The Indian Express.
The body was handed over to them after post-mortem, he said.
"Prima facie it appears that the girl committed suicide," the official confirmed.
Until now, no foul play has been noticed in this case, so an accidental death case has been registered at Dadar police station, he said, adding further investigation into the matter is underway.
