'I Knew Crime Branch Would Find Me': Lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha's Killer”

SAJJAD MUGHAL, the security guard who murdered corporate lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha and was on the run since March 2016 after jumping parole, was arrested by Mumbai Police from Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.

Mughal was arrested the next day from the railway station.

Mughal was employed as a watchman at the "Himalayan Heights" building.

In July 2014, a trial court found him guilty of the murder and sentenced him to life imprisonment even as he appealed against the verdict and the prosecution sought a death penalty in the Bombay High Court.

The police first suspected he had slipped across the border into Pakistan. "Our team was in J&K for seven to eight days before Mughal was picked up". "He couldn't believe we had traced him", Inspector Nikam added. "It was a great operation by our team and Pallavi's father started crying while talking to me", Padsalgikar said. "He said that he was waiting for this moment", said Padsalgikar.

PI Sanjay Nikam, who was heading the team, said that they went through several hard situations during investigation.

Summary: Highlights Pallavi was brutally assaulted and murdered by Sajjad Mughal in 2012 Sajjad Mughal left jail last year to visit unwell mother, never returned After his escape, Maharashtra decided rapists, murderers won't get paroleMumbai lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha's killer Sajjad Mughal, who had jumped parole last year, was arrested on Tuesday near Srinagar. Mughal had also changed his identity, names and appearance. "As he is not highly qualified, he would do odd jobs for a living, and is likely to have taken the help of some friends to evade arrest".

But the biggest hurdle for the crime branch came in the form of the September 2016 attack on Uri, a town in the Baramulla district in Kashmir. Mughal's native place, Salamabad, is also located in Baramulla, around 16 kilometers from the Indo-Pak border, and the police had information that he was working as a daily wage labourer near his native place. "He had convinced his family members and fellow villagers that he had been falsely implicated in Pallavi's murder, and they helped him to visit".

Purkayastha, who was the legal advisor with Bollywood actor-director Farhan Akhtar's firm Excel Entertainment, was found lying in a pool of blood by her fiance, Avik Sengupta at her rented flat. Police sources say that Mughal was nabbed from Sonmarg in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). The squad reached J&K and lay in wait for a week before they could nab him. "However, after finding employment at the tunnel project, he ventured out of his village and that's when we got our breakthrough", Nikam said.

The team first visited J&K around a year ago, posing as tourists. Past year has been a very hard time for us. We developed our local sources and were keeping a watch on him.
