Perumbavoor: The post-mortem report of the Dalit law student, who was found dead at her house in Ernakulam, Kerala, on April 28, has suggested that the 30-year-old was brutally raped before her death.
In a brutal reminder of gang-rape of a Delhi student on a moving bus in 2012, the body of the law student was found in Perumbavoor with the intestines hanging out.
According to kaumudi.com, there were around 30 injuries on the student's body. A deep wound on her neck was visible. The post-mortem report also suggested that the injury in her head caused her sudden death.
A report by Mathrubhumi said the victim was beaten savagely using a sharp weapon. The autopsy report also suggested that the two sides of her chest were pierced to almost two inches deep using a sharp knife. She was also hit in the genitals with an iron rod.
The woman lived with her mother. After returning to her single-room house from her daily work by 8.30 pm, the girl's mother found her daughter lying in a pool of blood.
No arrests have been made in the case as yet.
Talking to ANI, Deputy Superintendent of Police Anil Kumar said two teams were probing into the matter. Saying that the girl was brutally murdered, Kumar ruled out the possibility of the involvement of many people in the case.
With the Kerala Assembly Election 2016 round the corner, the CPI-M accused the Congress-led UDF government for the laxity in finding the culprit.
