KOCHI: The inquiry into the mysterious death of CA student Mishel Shaji has hit a roadblock as the investigators are still unable to offer a convincing explanation for the extreme step purportedly taken by the deceased girl.
Even as the Special Investigation Team(SIT) stuck to the suicide theory, the question what had happened to the 18-year-old during the three km-long journey from Kaloor to the High Court Junction remained steeped in mystery.
In order, to get at the truth, the SIT sleuths have begun collecting the CCTV footage from the private firms and the apartments. Investigators believe somebody had followed the girl.
According to the footage collected by the sleuths so far, Mishel was seen leaving the St Antony’s Church at Kaloor on March 5. While exiting the Church, she did not seemed perturbed. In another footage, Mishel was shown heading towards the Goshree Bridge side from the High Court Junction.
However,the footage did not have much clarity and the sleuths concluded it was indeed Mishel on the basis of the attire worn by the person seen in the grab, besides the gait and the manner of walking.
The parents of Mishel had alleged two youths had followed the girl when she left the Church on March 5 evening. After analysing the circumstances,the SIT believes the victim must have gone to the Goshree Bridge on foot.
