Mumbai-based lawyer Pallavi's murder: Court convicts security guard
Soul of Mumbai-based lawyer Pallavi Purkayastha, who was molested and brutally killed by her building's security guard Sajjad Ahmed Mughal, may have got some solace today as her killer was convicted in all the charges framed against him two years back.

The court will further hear the arguments between prosecution lawyer Ujjwal Nikkam and defence lawyer on Thursday to decide the quantum of punishment. Meanwhile Pallavi's parents have demanded nothing less than the capital punishment.

The gruesome incident happened on august 09, 2012, when Pallavi became the victim of lust of the security guard. The guard, who entered Pallavi's room on the pretext of repairing electricity fault, tried to rape her, but on getting a stiff resistance from Pallavinslit, slit her throat.

The guard Sajjad originally hails from Jammu and Kashmir and had been working as a security guard at Himalayan Heights for the last two years from the date of murder. After the incident he tried to flee but arrested by the local police team.

The court has today found Sajjad guilty of murder, outraging modesty of a woman and trespassing.
