Perambavoor (Kerala), May 9: Media frenzy prevailed here Monday morning when Deepa, the sister of murdered Dalit law student Jisha, was asked to accompany a police team for questioning before being let off. Scotching rumours that police were looking for her friend, a migrant labourer, Deepa, who has been attending on her ailing mother in hospital, later said: “They (police) took me because I wanted to take a few clothes and my bank pass book. It was safe to go with the women police officers. I don’t know why the media is speculating.”

The development came 12 days after Jisha’s mutilated body was found by her mother Rajeshwari. The murder of the 27-year-old law student led to widespread public outrage, with claims that she was sexually assaulted. Police have been looking into Deepa’s phone call list. There have been reports that she had made several phone calls, as was confirmed by her uncle who was also questioned by the police. (IANS)
