Saturday evening saw as many as hundred people protesting in Kozhikode against the murder of Rasila Raju, the Infosys employee who was killed on January 29 at her office in Pune.

With placards and banners in hand, the protesters who were part of a Facebook community ‘Justice for Rasila’ staged a protest march to Kozhikode beach.

The protesters pointed out that Infosys was accountable for the murder of one of their employees while she was at work and questioned the security system at the company. They are also planning to stage a protest demonstration at Infosys office in Pune in the coming days. 

They also demanded that the police investigate the involvement of the company in the murder. The police have arrested Bhaben Saikia, an Assamese who worked as a security guard, for murdering the techie.

Earlier this week, Rasila’s family back in Kerala called for a press meet and told reporters that they were not satisfied with the way the investigation was being carried out.

Raising doubts on the arrested person, a security guard from a nearby building, the family alleged that Rasila was being harassed by her manager. The close relatives of Rasila Raju said in Kozhikode that there is every possibility that there could be more than one person involved in the murder.

"The authorities are trying to close the case by just framing Saikia. She has never ever said that Saikia was troubling her. She had raised complaints against a company manager also. The crime cannot be done just by one person. For the truth to come out, we demand a CBI probe," her close family members had told journalists.

Her father added that when Rasila spoke to her cousin only minutes before she was killed, she abruptly disconnected the telephone call saying that someone was entering her cubicle.
