Pallavi, a law student, was the youngest daughter of Nilesh Vikamsey.
Pallavi texted her family saying she meant to end her life. She was on her way home from work when the fatal incident occurred. She was last seen boarding a local train at CSMT station yesterday at around 6 pm, the official said. Around 6.40 pm, Government Railway Police (GRP) officials informed the station master about a woman lying on the tracks in an injured state.
A 20-year-old female’s body was found on railway tracks Wednesday evening in Mumbai between the Parel and Curry Road stations. Her cellphone was not found on her body. As they could not identify the woman, the GRP registered an accidental death case. On Thursday, Pallavi’s relatives confirmed that it was her body, said a senior official. “A missing was registered in MRA Marg police staion.” said DCP GRP Samadhan Pawar. The same day, GRP registered an ADR at the Dadar GRP station and began efforts to identify her. Sources said that cops told several other police stations about Pallavi going missing, which they later shared to more stations. “She sent text messages to a few family members telling them that no one should be held responsible for her actions”.
An official of the Dadar GRP said an eyewitness had been traced. “We checked all the cameras at the station where the train had gone but we could not find her”, added Varpe. They are also scanning CCTVs to understand what happened.
The police said the only belongings found on the body was a ring on Pallavi’s right hand. Her parents called sometime later, saying she had not reached home. “We told them about the accident case and she was later identified as the samewoman”.
“According to the Newspaper, They then lodged a missing persons complaint around 10.30 pm”.
Pallavi had gone missing when she was returning from a law firm at Fort in south Mumbai. Her phone was switched off thereafter so her family could not get in touch with her.
