The police had zeroed down on Bhaben Sailcia, a 26-year-old from Assam who worked as a watchman in the office. After committing the crime, Sailcia left the campus like any other day at 6.30 pm, reached home, packed his bag and left for Mumbai in a bid to escape. However, the police nabbed him from the Chhtrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and brought him back to Pune for interrogation.
How it happened
Informing about the murder’s motive and cause, Ganesh Shinde of Zone 3 told media, ‘On Saturday, the girl had noticed the watchman staring at her obscenely. She confronted and threatened to report him to the authorities. They argued over the issue and the girl left’.
‘On Sunday, when she came to work again at 2 pm, he went to the room and requested her to not complain against him. This again led to another heated argument. In fit of rage, he took the chord of the LAN cable of the computer and strangulated her in the room’.

However, the girl’s grieving father has a different view. Raju OP alleged that Rasila’s boss has a hand in the crime, as she had often told him about the harassment she faced in the office. Speaking to Mirror, Raju OP said, ‘She wanted to shift to Bengaluru. However, her boss refused to give her a transfer. She was troubled with this harassment’.
‘I fail to understand how a watchman has access to all the rooms in the office? The security guard had joined hands with her boss in the crime,’ Raju alleged. He also blamed Infosys’ system for the death of his daughter.
