Problem in Unix script to exit from Putty

We have a requirement where in the user needs to select a option 4 from the menu and the putty window should be closed.I tried giving exit 0 ;; and this is only exiting from the script menu and showing back the prompt.Is there a way for this.

env | grep SSH_CLIENT | awk ' { print $2 } '

that should return the PID of ssh client session.
Then maybe you can kill the session by killing that PID.

also execute your script this way (dot space <yourscript>) like :
. ./yourscript

here is a quick example you can try :
$ echo "exit" >mytst
$ chmod +x mytst
$ cat mytst
$ ./mytst
$ sh ./mytst
$ . ./mytst

The last command will exit the terminal session you are in

Also note that the persistence of PuTTY windows can be tweaked in PuTTY configuration :
Menu : "Session"
Frame : "Close window on exit"
-Close on exit

... just choose the option you need
