Jisha, was found dead by her mother Rajeswari at their house in Rayamangalam panchayat on Thursday night after she returned from her daily work.

According to local media reports, Jisha was beaten savagely by a stranger/s using a sharp weapon that pulled out her intestines. More than 30 injuries were found on her body.

As per the autopsy report, two sides of her chest were pierced to almost two inches deep using a sharp knife. She was also struck in the genitals with an iron rod. A severe injury on her head is cited as the main reason of her death.

“It was a brutal murder. There were stab injuries on her body. We suspect she was subjected to smothering and strangulation,” Ernakulam Range IG Mahipal Yadav told PTI.

He, however, refused to share details about the investigation.

Police said whether the woman was subjected to sexual assault before or after the murder would be clear only from the post-mortem report.

Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said that a ‘scientific’ probe was being conducted into the incident and asserted that the culprits would be brought to book.

Meanwhile, as more details of the heinous crime emerged, people took to social media sites in protest. Using the #Justice for Jisha, the users expressed their agitation on poor media coverage of the crime and the delay in nabbing the culprits, even after a week since the incident.
