Kochi | CPM leader Pinarayi Vijayan has said that cremation of the body of brutally murdered Dalit law student Jisha immediately after post-mortem is mysterious.

Talking to media Friday after visiting the mother of Jisha, who is hospitalized in Perumbavoor Taluk hospital, he accused the police of showing complacency in finding evidence leading to the arrest of those responsible for Jisha’s death.

Pinarayi said Jisha’s mother Rajeswari told him that police did not allow her to see her daughter’s body. Rajeshwari was against cremating Jisha’s body. And why the police ignored it is dubious, according to Pinarayi.

He alleged that women in Kerala, irrespective of whether they are children or old-aged, are not safe.

Meanwhile, seven of 12 suspects held over the rape and murder of Jisha have been released from police custody.
