Meanwhile, two persons have been taken into custody in connection with the rape and brutal murder of a 30-year-old Dalit woman at Perumbavoor that sparked street protests by students and rights activists across the state on Tuesday.
Jisha was found murdered on April 28 at her home near a canal in Perumbavoor in Ernakulam by her mother who works as a casual labourer.
The possibility that Jisha might have been sexually assaulted and the mutilation that her body bore has led some to compare the case with that of Jyoti Singh 'Nirbhaya' who was gang-raped and brutalised on December 16, 2012 in a moving bus in Delhi.
With assembly polls to take place on May 16, the Left opposition, led by CPI-M, is now determined to take this case up as an election issue to hit at the Chandy government.
