The Kurla Government Railway Police (GRP) have prepared a sketch of the man who allegedly murdered 65-year-old Nanki Lal Mohammad Siddiqui based on the blurred images from the CCTV footage.
Nanki was killed in the ladies compartment of Kamayani Express and was found dead at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT). She was travelling from Varanasi to Mumbai with her grandson, Mohamed Siddiqui, 19.
The police acquired the recordings of the CCTV footage from cameras installed at platform eight of the Thane railway station, from where the accused boarded the train on Saturday night. Posing as a ticket collector, he allegedly asked Mohamed to leave the ladies compartment, or pay a fine.
Mohamed left the compartment and on reaching LTT, he found Nanki dead, with Rs2,500 missing from her purse.
