Top CA’s daughter first filmed boarding local train, then body found on tracks


In a shocking incident the daughter of a top CA was found on railway tracks in Central Mumbai after she was filmed boarding a train, a senior GRP official said today.

20-year-old Pallavi, the daughter of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) president Nilesh Vikamsey, 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 CSMT station yesterday 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, PTI reported quoting officials.

A senior official said that police had found the body of a girl on the tracks between Parel and Currey Road station last evening. It was today that Pallavi’s relatives confirmed that it was her body.

“We found body of a woman on tracks between Parel and Currey road yesterday at around 7.30 pm. Today, her relatives confirmed her as Pallavi Vikamsey,” said DCP Samadhan Pawar, spokesperson of GRP (Central Railway).

Later, the body was handed over to them after post-mortem, he said. “Prima facie it appears that the girl committed suicide,” the official confirmed.

CCTV footage seen by the police shows her boarding a local train at Mumbai’s main train station – the Chhatrapati  Shivaji Terminus or CST – on Wednesday at around 6 pm, reported NDTV. It takes 15 minutes for the sort of local train she took to cover the distance from there to Parel, where her family lives.

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.

Pallavi, a law student, was the youngest daughter of Nilesh Vikamsey.
