Kochi: The Ernakulam Principal Sessions Court will pronounce the verdict in the Perumbavur  Jisha murder case on Tuesday. Assamese native Ameerul Islam is the lone accused in the case in which the prosecution relied on circumstantial and material evidence in the absence  of direct ones. The dalit woman Jisha, 30,  was found murdered at her house at Vattolipadi, Iringolkkara, Perumbavoor, on April 28, 2016.  None of the neighbours had any clue on the murder or even heard her screaming.

The accused was a daily wage labourer and used to go to the worksite through the road by the side of the victim’s house. According to cops, several witnesses had seen him near the victim’s house on the day. The cops also recovered the accused’s DNA from the nail clip and churidhar  of the victim besides from the doorframe in  the backyard of the house. They also found matching DNA from the slippers used by the accused.

 

Special public prosecutor N. Unnikrishnan said the case had strong evidence, including results of the forensic and DNA tests conducted on the accused.  The prosecution had argued for capital punishment to the accused. The court trial lasted 85 days since the hearing began on April 4 this year.  The prosecution examined 100 witnesses, including 15 migrant labourers,  and presented 290 documents and 36 material pieces of evidence.
