The Kurla government railway police (GRP) are still clueless in the case of 65-year-old Nanki Lalmohammad Siddiqui who was found with her throat slit in the ladies compartment of Kamayani Express on Sunday. The motive of the murder was said to be robbery as Rs 2,500 were missing from her purse.
Dilip Gore, senior police inspector of Kurla GRP, said, “So far we have no leads in the case. We have already circulated the sketches of the accused and having also sought the assistance of the Thane modus operandi (MO) bureau to help us trace the killer.”
The police acquired CCTV footage from cameras installed at platform number 8 of Thane railway station. Based on the blurred images, the police have prepared a sketch of the accused.
The Kurla railway police are relying on the MO bureau to help them with the identification, as they believe he could be a resident of Thane. The accused was captured on CCTV cameras boarding a train from Thane railway station.
Nanki had boarded the train from Varanasi junction on April 29. When the train reached Thane the next day, an unknown person boarded the train and asked her grandson Mohamed to go to the general compartment or pay a fine. Mohamed later found Nanki’s body with her throat slit.
