The body of a 20-year-old law intern was found in mysterious circumstances on the railway tracks near Currey Road station on Wednesday night. She has been identified as Pallavi Vikamsey, daughter of Nilesh Vikamsey, president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). The Dadar government railway police are investigating the case.

“The parents told us that Vikamsey had sent them a message that ‘no one is responsible’ before her phone was switched off,” said Sukhlal Varpe, senior inspector of MRA Marg police station.

According to the police, they received a call from the station master at 8.30pm about a body lying on the tracks. The body was sent to KEM Hospital.

Vikamsey had recently completed studies and was interning at a law firm in Fort.

A resident of Curry Road, when Vikamsey did not return home on Wednesday night, her parents began calling her but her phone was switched off. The parents then approached the MRA Marg police and registered a missing person’s complaint. Police officers said that Vikamsey was last seen boarding a train from CSMT station towards Thane at 6pm — as was her routine.

An official of the Dadar GRP said an eyewitness had been traced. His statement will be recorded on Friday.

“It is not clear whether Vikamsey fell from the running train on the opposite tracks or whether she jumped off in front of an oncoming train,” said Nitin Bbade, senior police inspector of Dadar GRP. Samadhan Pawar, deputy commissioner of police, GRP (Central Railway), said that the parents had not alleged any foul play, “We are trying to find out what led to her death,” said Pawar.
