After recording the statements of friends and parents of 20-year-old law intern whose body was found in mysterious circumstances on the railway tracks near Currey Road station, the police have concluded that she had committed suicide.

The police, however, refused to reveal the reason that caused her to take the extreme step.

The body of the ICAI president’s daughter, Pallavi Vikamsey, was found on the tracks between Curry Road and Parel stations on Wednesday night.

“Based on the statements of her parents and friends, it is clear that Pallavi committed suicide,” said Manoj Kumar Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (zone 1).

The MRA Marg police, who were investigating Vikamsey’s case, said that they are yet to record a few statements of her friends, but it is confirmed that there is no foul play involved in her death. The Dadar Government Railway police who had recorded a case of accidental death also recorded the statement of eyewitnesses.

Vikamsey had removed her gold earrings and chain and left them in her office drawer, before boarding the train from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus at 6pm on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a prayer meeting was held for Vikamsey at Dadar on Saturday, which was attended by several of her friends and colleagues.

“We neither found her mobile phone near her body nor in her office drawer,” said Machindra Chavan, assistant commissioner of police (GRP) Dadar division.

The police want to check Vikamsey’s call data records, to find out who the last person she spoke to was.

After she did not return home on Wednesday night, her parents tried to call her, but could not get through. They then approached the MRA Marg police, who registered a missing person’s complaint. Police officers said Vikamsey was last seen boarding a train from CSMT station towards Thane at 6pm — as was her routine.

Vaikamsey had sent her parents a text message saying ‘No one is responsible’, before her phone got switched off.
