Kochi: Identification parade of a migrant labourer, prime accused in the killing of Jisha, 27-year-old Dalit woman in Perumbavoor here, is likely to be held Monday.
The identification parade of accused Ameerul Islam is expected to be held at Kakkanad sub-jail, where he has been lodged after a magistrate court in Perumbavoor remanded him into 14-days judicial custody on Friday, police sources said.
The 23-year-old Islam, hailing from Dholda Gramam in Assams Nauga district, was arrested on June 16 for killing the law student, 50 days after the gruesome incident that had become a major issue in the recent state Assembly elections.
Meanwhile, a team of officials who were part of the Special Investigation Team probing the murder Sunday visited Islam’s residence in Assam to gather more evidences against him.
The woman, who hailed from a poor family, was raped and brutally assaulted using sharp-edged weapons before being murdered at her house on April 28.
Over 100 police personnel, who had launched a scientific investigation into the incident, had questioned over 1,500 people.
They had examined finger prints of over 5,000 people and went through over 20 lakh telephonic conversations before reaching the culprit.
