Thiruvananthapuram: The police investigation team investigating the Jisha murder case on Tuesday took the main accused, who allegedly raped and then killed the 30-year-old law student at her residence, to Perumbavoor for collection of evidence.
Twenty-year-old Amir Ul-Islam, the main accused in the law student rape-murder case, was arrested by the Kerala Police a fortnight ago from Palakkad border in Tamil Nadu. He confessed to committing the gruesome murder of the law student in Perumbavoor.
Apparently, the probe team recreated the crime scene as they took Amir to Jisha's home, hoping to find crucial evidence such as weapon used for attacking the victim and how the accused committed the crime.
According to reports, the officials also visited a nearby hotel where they Amir was a regular visitor.
If reports are to be believed, authorities also want a polygraph test to be conducted on the main accused as they believed that he is hiding details in the gruesome murder case. The officials believed that through the test, they will be able to reconstruct details of crime that took place early this year.
According to the police, Amir had visited Jisha's home on April 28 morning when he had an altercation with her. He returned hours later in an inebriated state when he raped the girl before murdering him. Amir had reportedly hired an autorickshaw to flee the crime scene on April 28.
The police, meanwhile, have also launched a manhunt for Anarul Islam who is suspected to have helped Amir commit the crime.
Jisha, a 29-year-old Dalit law student, was murdered on April 28 at her house in Perumbavoor. An initial probe had revealed that she had had links with the accused.
