The police has escalated the probe to find out the culprits for the brutal murder of a Law student Jisha in Ernakulam district that shuddered the entire nation. As many days already have been passed, police has arrested around a dozen of people in connection with the murder.

The latest two suspects to be nabbed includes a neighbour of the victim’s family, a police official said on Friday. There are two migrant labourers among others who are arrested, the official said.

The review meeting including 30-member probe team held late on Thursday night. Director General of Police T.P. Senkumar expressed satisfaction over the progress of the investigation.

The official said that the police has ascertained that the murder took place around 5.45 p.m on April 28 when Jisha’s mutilated body was found by her mother Rajeshwari. Police believes that the 27-year-old Dalit woman was sexually assaulted before being killed.

Meanwhile, the case continues to be a subject of political theatre in Kerala where voting for the assembly election is scheduled on May 16.

State Congress president V.M. Sudheeran on Friday visited Jisha’s mother Rajeshwari at a hospital where she has been admitted after the shock caused by her daughter’s murder.

“This should never ever happen to any mother. The need of the hour is that as and when the police track down the person responsible for this heinous crime, maximum punishment should be handed out to the accused,” said Sudheeran after meeting Rajeshwari.

“What I could find out from her was that this situation could have been avoided had the people’s representatives at all levels discharged their responsibility. The only way Kerala can get away from these sorts of incidents is handing out maximum punishments at a quick pace to people who do such things,” added Sudheeran.
