Hunt for man who murdered student on
NEW DELHI: India police are hunting for a man who sexually mutilated and murdered a student, an officer said Tuesday, an attack which echoes the 2012 fatal gang-rape of a Delhi student that sparked mass protests. The 30-year-old university law student from a low social caste was attacked last Thursday at her home in the southern state of Kerala, with her mother discovering her body in a pool of blood. “The suspect attacked and murdered her brutally and fled the scene quickly,” police inspector general Mahipal Yadav, who is heading the investigation, said of the case reported on Tuesday in national newspapers.”There are indications that her intestines came out after severe violation by some foreign object,” Yadav told AFP. He said police suspect the victim was also raped but were awaiting a medical report.
