Jisha’s sister Deepa happy that the accused is nabbedtext_fields
Perumbavoor: Deepa, the sister of Jisha who was brutally raped and murdered in her home on April 28, on Thursday said she is happy that the accused in the case has been nabbed by the police.
The police on Thursday took Amir Ul Islam, a migrant labourer from Assam, into custody with the murder of Jisha.
Talking to the media about the development, Deepa said she did not know the suspect personally. “No matter who it is, he should be brought to justice,” she said.
As per reports, the Special Investigation Team probing the murder of the woman was questioning the 23-year-old migrant worker. His arrest is expected to be recorded later Thursday.
The LDF government, after assuming power on May 25 had changed the investigation team and entrusted the probe to ADGP B Sandhya on its first cabinet meeting itself.
The rape and murder was in focus during the Assembly polls campaign with political parties attacking the then UDF regime for tardy progress in the investigation and failure to nab the culprits.
The attack, which took place at Perumbavoor in Ernakulam district, had been a major campaign plank of the LDF in the run up to the May 16 Assembly elections.
