Police Sub-Inspector T V Pardhi from Ghatkopar police station said, “The woman has herself clicked the picture of the accused. We are now trying to locate the station from which he boarded the train. We will also give the picture to our informers to trace him.” Cops said they would also use the Aadhar card database to match the picture to a name.
However, police added that they couldn’t recover CCTV footage from the Metro station, as the footage gets wiped out every 48 hours. When contacted, a Mumbai Metro One Pvt Ltd (MMOPL) spokesperson said, “We are providing all the help to Mumbai Police. In future, too, MMOPL will assist the police in solving cases.” When asked specifically if CCTV footage only lasted 48 hours, the spokesperson refused to comment further.
