Jisha murder: Rahul Gandhi to visit house of victim
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi will visit the house of the Dalit Law student who was brutally raped and murdered in Perumbavoor in Kerala.
Party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia informed that Gandhi will visit Perumbavoor to console the family bereaving the death of Jisha, who was found murdered on Thursday at her home.
The Congress Vice President tweeted that he spoke to state Congress chief VM Sudheeran about the incident and informed that the Kerala Government will take swift action to bring the guilty to book.
The intervention of Gandhi comes in the wake of an outburst of public anger over the incident in Kerala. The left parties were quick to grab the opportunity to blame the government for the alleged delay in nabbing the culprit. The left youth brigades tried to block Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala from visiting the mother of the victim.
