A 29-year year old woman was brutally raped and murdered in Kerala’s Permubavoor, with the sheer brutality of the crime evoking memories of the 2012 Delhi gang rape.
The victim, identified as Jisha, a law college student was found dead on Thursday, with more than thirty injury marks all over her body.
According to the autopsy report, the the victim was raped and her intestines were pulled out using a sharp-edged weapon.
Police said the victim, who lived with her mother, was alone at the home when the attack happened.
“She received several stab wounds. We suspect the deep wound on her head might have turned fatal,” said a senior police officer said.
Even though, Kerala home minister said all angles, including the involvement of workers from other states are being looked into, police have hinted that the crime could have been committed by locals. Permubavoor, an industrial town in Ernakulam district has a large migrant labour population.
Unfortunately after five days of the attack taking place, police have not been able to make any significant breakthrough in the probe, causing widespread protest across the state.
Peopel are using #JusticeForJisha to demand justice for the victim.
