Corporate lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha's father seeks capital punishment for his daughter's murderer

Mumbai: Sajjad Mughal, who jumped parole in March 2016 after he was convicted of the murder of city-based lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha in 2012, had allegedly planned to flee to Pakistan to hide but chose to stay back in Jammu & Kashmir because of his mother, according to the police.

Police Commissioner Datta Padsalgikar told media persons late on Tuesday evening that the investigators notched success after painstaking investigations and human intelligence to arrest the absconder-convict after more than a year.

Twenty-five-year-old pallavi was assaulted in her own apartment at Wadala in central Mumbai. Sajjad Mughal, alias Pathan, who was sentenced to life term in jail in 2014, left a Nashik prison in March previous year on the plea that he wanted to visit his unwell mother.

"The killing had sent shivers down the spines of Mumbaikars and the police had swung into action and arrested him as he was trying to flee to Jammu & Kashmir", Padsalgikar said.

The police team, which comprised of few officials who had arrested him in the murder case, was in J&K for a week before they managed to nab him with the help of "local sources" that they had developed.

Summary: A watchman who was convicted for murdering lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha in 2012 and jumped parole over 18 months ago was arrested by Mumbai police from Jammu and Kashmir, a senior official said on Tuesday. He never returned after his 30-day parole was over. The case has been transferred to the Nashik police. Purkayastha was working as an advisor at filmmaker Farhan Akhtar's firm Excel Entertainment. The then prison superintendent of Nashik prison, BK Upadhyaya, was eventually suspended by the state government.
