Jisha case: Lone accused Ameerul Islam found guilty

Law Student Stabbed 30 Times Before Being Strangled

The principal sessions court in Ernakulam district on Tuesday found a migrant worker from Assam guilty of the rape and murder of a Dalit law student previous year.

Months later after the Jisha rape and murder took place, the Kerala Session's court has today convicted the suspect Ameer-ul-Aslam, an Assamese labourer guilty of raping and murdering Jisha. The court also said that the charges of destruction of evidence (IPC 201) and other charges under various sections of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act will not stand in the case.

The court will likely to pronounce the quantum of punishment on Wednesday. The trial, which began on April 4 this year, ran for 85 days.

The case is based on the brutal murder of Jisha, a Dalit woman at her house at Vattolippadi in Kuruppanthara.

The sessions court had completed the hearing in the sensational case on December 6. On June 16, 49 days after Jisha was found dead, the police arrested Ameerul Islam - a migrant worker from Assam - from Kanchipuram in neighbouring Tamil Nadu. "As many as 100 witnesses, including 15 migrant labourers, were examined by the prosecution which also presented circumstantial evidence before the court against Islam". "Evidence included results of the forensic and DNA tests conducted on the accused".




The defence unsuccessfully attempted to dispute the time of death and also establish that the murder was committed by Anarul Islam and Hardat Barua. The prosecution had described it as the rarest of rare case and the police team had questioned more than 2,000 people.

Shockingly, when Jisha asked him to provide her some water, he had given her alcohol.

As Firstpost writer G Pramod Kumar had argued earlier, "Jisha was a landless Dalit living in a one-room hutment on a canal poramboke".

However, the Left Democratic Front (Kerala) government, which gained power, changed the investigation team in its first cabinet meeting itself.
