Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Saturday handed over the keys of a newly constructed house here in Ernakulam district to the mother of the young Dalit woman, Jisha, who was found dead on April 28.
The 600 sq ft home, named ‘Jisha Bhavan,’ has been built at a cost of Rs 11 lakh with the help of the state government.
Rajeshwari, Jisha’s mother, took the keys from Vijayan. “Generally, it’s a happy occasion when someone moves into a new home. But here, it’s not so, as none can be happy after the brutal murder of Jisha. We all wish that no mother ever undergoes this sort of mental agony ever,” said Vijayan.
After the Vijayan government took over on May 25, it also provided the government job which was promised to Jisha’s sister.
Rajeshwari, a casual labourer, found her 27-year-old daughter dead on April 28.
The police last month said they had arrested the main accused in the Jisha murder case, Ameerul Islam -- a migrant worker from Assam who was sent in judicial custody till July 13 by a court here.
