KOCHI: Investigation of the sensational Jisha murder case appears to be nearing the climax, with the police claiming to have narrowed down the suspect who is in their custody.
An official who is part of the investigation team told ‘Express’ that fingerprints collected from Jisha’s house were found to be matching with one of the three suspects in custody.
Based on their findings, the police have decided to conduct DNA test using the vaginal swab collected from Jisha’s body.
