Jigisha murder case: Justice after 7 long years

New Delhi: IT executive Jigisha Ghosh, who was murdered on the intervening night of March 17-18, 2009, finally got justice after 7 long years, on Monday as a Saket court sentenced two of her killers to death and one was sentenced to life imprisonment.

Delhi Police were shaken by the abduction-cum-murder of the young IT executive back in 2009. Six months ago another young woman Soumya Vishwanathan had been murdered and Delhi Police had been faced flak for its handling of the investigation.

Delhi Police got together its best men to catch the killers this time. They also announced a handsome reward for anyone giving information on the case.

DCP (south) H G S Dhaliwal and a team, led by inspector Atul Kumar, worked tirelessly to solve the case. The investigations showed results within eight days. Police found that both Jigisha and Soumya murders had a common thread; not only that, with the arrest of the IT executive's killers, they cracked another case -- that of a transporter who was killed during a robbery bid.

Dhaliwal admitted that "it's been a long journey" while speaking to The Times of India. Talking about Jigisha's parents, he said, "From a stage where they had gone into depression, our efforts helped bring a smile to their face," said Dhaliwal.

"The void (of losing their daughter) can never be filled, but we did our best. Their blessings have meant a lot to us," Inspector Kumar said.
