KOCHI: Coming down heavily on the police team probing the Jisha murder case, the ‘Justice for Jisha Council Coordination Committee-Kerala’ has urged the government to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation to ensure an effective investigation.
Committee chairperson Lyla Rashid said the case must be investigated by the CBI since the Kerala Police could not arrest the culprit(s) even one month after the incident.
“ADGP B Sandhya, who is leading the investigation, has said it would take more time to arrest the culprits. Her statement itself shows that the probe team is not confident about arresting the accused,” said the committee members, and pointed out that the case was being dragged though there is strong evidence to book the accused.
The Committee has decided to send a representation to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, signed by people from across the State, to ensure justice for Jisha. It has also been decided to stage a protest march and Manushya Sangamam at 10 am on May 30, from the Boys High School to the DySP office at Perumbavoor.
