Kerala police have revealed the face of Amir-Ul-Islam, the prime suspect in the sensational Jisha murder case, while he was being taken to the court at Perumbavoor in Kerala on Thursday, June 30. Since the time the investigators had caught Amir, they had kept his face covered when he was brought out in public. This is the first time he was presented without a face mask.

However, Amir doesn't resemble the sketch of the suspect that was released by the police, after ADGP B Sandhya was handed over the murder case. After meeting the suspect on June 28, Jisha's mother KK Rajeshwari and her sister Deepa had claimed that they haven't seen Amir before. Earlier, Amir's face was hidden, with the police saying that it might affect the probe as the investigators were yet to complete the identification parade.
