Senior Inspector Sunil Mahadik added, "On August 13, the Railway court of Daund directed the Railway Security Force (RSF) to produce Indrajeet before the court for a final verdict based on which PSI Londe produced a suspect identified as Pawankumar before the court. The Judicial Magistrate First Class, G S Varpe held Indrajeet Yadav guilty for the offence and sentenced him to 14 days in judicial custody.
