The post-mortem report of the 30-year-old woman murdered in Perumbavoor last Thursday suggests that she was raped before being killed. The nature of the murder has sent shockwaves in Kerala as media reports say the post-mortem has revealed that her internal organs were also severely damaged.

Perumbavoor DySP Anil Kumar told The News Minute that the post-mortem report not only suggests sexual assault, but also records that there were severe injuries on the victim’s body.

“The incident occurred inside her house, neighbours had seen the victim around 1 pm. So it might have happened after that. Police were informed after her mother saw the body around 8 pm. As of now we have not got any evidence (pointing to an accused). It is an area where lot of migrant labourers reside, so we are extending our enquiry to them too,” DySP said.

The victim who was a law student, was living with her mother Rajeswari on a plot of ‘purambokku’ land. At the time of the murder, the victim was alone at home as her mother had gone out for work.

Police said that they have intensified the probe.
