Newly appointed Kerala Police Chief Loknath Behera, while visiting the house of the 30-year-old woman on Sunday, had said a scientific probe has been launched to nab the culprits involved in the crime.
Noting that the probe into the sensational case was progressing well, he had said it might take some time to nab the criminals.
The case is being investigated by a team headed by ADGP B Sandhya.
The newly sworn-in LDF government in one of its first decisions had appointed the senior woman IPS officer as head of the new team to probe the case.
Jisha, who hailed from a poor family, was allegedly raped and brutally assaulted using sharp-edged weapons before being murdered at her house on 28 April.
