The post-mortem report of a 29-year-old law student from Ernakulam Law College, who was raped and murdered on April 28, has revealed that she was brutally assaulted before the perpetrators killed her. The shocking revelations also says that whole incident was planned and orchestrated in a similar fashion to 26-year-old Delhi resident Jyoti Singh’s rape, popularly known as ‘Nirbhaya’, on December 16, 2012.
Jisha, as reported by Mathrubhumi, was assaulted before and after being raped. The post mortem report also reveals that the perpetrators stabbed her with a sharp knife, which pulled out her intestines. According to the autopsy report, more than 30 injuries have been found on her body. The criminals pierced the two sides of her chest to almost two inches deep and struck in the genitals with an iron rod. However, the main reason for her death is said to be a serious injury in her head.
The medical report is stated to be handed over to the police by Tuesday. Though the incident took place a week earlier, the investigators are still clueless in the case, which is now being called the Nirbhaya case of Kerala. Survived by her married sister and her father who are now living separately from the family for years, Jisha was found dead by her mother Rajeswari at their house in Rayamangalam panchayat on Thursday night. While the family is in shock, the investigators have assured that the perpetrators will be brought behind bars soon.
With crime against women in the southern state rising at a rapid rate, social media users have demanded justice for the law student and have started a page in Facebook with hashtag #JusticeforJisha. Some have also taken the route of micro blogging website, condemning the attack. They have also requested the government to take strict action against perpetrators of this heinous crime.
