MADURAI: Language issues seems to be hampering the pace of the probe into the alleged gangrape and murder of a 46-year-old fisherwoman.
Locals resorted to massive protest after the body of the fisherwoman was found at Vadakadu near Rameswaram on Tuesday night.
Six migrant workers of a private shrimp farm, located near the site where the body was found, were arrested in connection with the case and six special teams were formed to speed up the investigation.
The investigation has slowed down owing to language issues, sources said. The team has taken two Aadhaar cards from the person of the six suspects.
The victim’s body was handed over to her relatives after post-mortem at the Ramanathapuram Government Hospital. The post mortem report is awaited, sources said.
