Joint Commissioner of Police Sanjiv Kumar Singhal said that senior officers have been tasked with supervising the investigations, and that a special team would be formed to track down the main accused, Yogesh Raut.
In 2009, 27-year-old Ms Pujari was allegedly raped and murdered by four men while she was on her way home from work. She was traveling in a car owned by her company.
The driver and a security guard assigned to escort her home were arrested, along with two friends. As the case was progressing in court, the main accused, Yogesh Raut, fled in September 2011. It was not too difficult for him to do so.
When brought to Pune's Sassoon Hospital for a medical check-up, the cab driver said he wanted to use the toilet. A constable assigned to guard him removed his handcuffs, and he was allowed to wander away unsupervised.
Ms Pujari's husband had asked for a fast-tracked trial for his wife's case, but his petition was rejected by the Maharashtra Home department.
