The body of Pallavi Vikamsey, daughter of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) president Nilesh Vikamsey, was found on a railway track in Central Mumbai. The 21-year-old had gone missing while returning from a law firm at Fort in south Mumbai where she was an intern. She was last seen boarding a local train in CSTM station on Wednesday at 6 pm.
When Pallavi did not return home on time, her family members filed a missing complaint with MRA Marg police station. According to a report by the Indian Express, Pallavi texted her family before leaving office, saying that she was going to end her life. Sukhlal Varpe of the MRA Marg police station said, "She sent text messages to a few family members telling them that no one should be held responsible for her actions. She then switched off her cellphone. They began to search for her and when they couldn’t find her, they came to us."
Police found the body of the girl on the tracks between Parel and Currey Road station on Thursday evening. A senior official said that it was on Thursday that Pallavi's relatives confirmed that it was her body.
The only belonging that was found on her body was a ring on her right hand. Her cellphone was missing. A senior police official said, "Prima facie it appears that the girl committed suicide." Since no foul play is being suspected, a case of accidental death was registered at Dadar Police station. Further investigation is underway.
Apart from being the president of ICAI, Nilesh Vikamsey is also a partner in Khimji Kunverji and Company, which is a leading audit firm.
