The court found Manu Mohinder Ebrol, who worked in the same firm as the girl, of raping and killing the woman after stabbing her 18 times on the night of October 20, 2008, in her rented apartment.
After committing the crime, Ebrol had fled to Bhopal. He was arrested later by Pune Police. The prosecution examined 26 witnesses for the case and forensic evidence such as call details and medical records also proved crucial.
