Jisha murder: Probing case not a magic, says Behera
Kochi: Newly appointed DGP Loknath Behera on Sunday visited the home of Jisha, who was brutally killed in her house at Perumbavoor, and said that the case would be solved as early as possible. He told mediapersons that investigation of the crime is no magic and would go ahead with it in a scientific way. The DGP examined the house of Jisha.
"We are doing the investigation. Investigation is not like magic. A scientific probe has been launched to nab the culprits," he told reporters in Perumbavoor.
Behera, who visited the house of the law student, said a scientific probe has been launched to nab the culprits involved in the crime.
Noting that the probe into the sensational case was progressing well, he said it might take some time to nab the criminals.
Facing flak over the delay in arresting the people involved in the crime, Behera said in some cases arrests can be made in 24 hours but in some cases it may take at least a
year to arrest the culprits.
The DGP along with his team of officials examined Jisha’s house and its surroundings for about an hour and later visited Jisha’s mother in the hospital. Before visiting Jisha’s house, the DGP enquired about the progress of investigation with the probe team led by ADGP Sandhya.
The LDF government in one of its first decisions appointed senior woman IPS officer Sandhya as the head of a new team to probe the case.
The Kerala High Court had last week rejected the plea for a CBI probe into the case noting that a new Special Investigation Team had been set up in the case.
The woman, who hailed from a poor family, was allegedly raped and brutally assaulted using sharp-edged weapons before being murdered at her house on April 28.
The 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
