Uthra might have been forcefully bitten by snake, says Vava Suresh
Kottarakkara (Kollam): In connection with the murder of Anchal native Uthra, Vava Suresh gave statement to the police that she might have been forcefully bitten by the snake. The police recorded Vava Suresh's statement as part of collecting evidence in the case and because he is an expert in snake catching.
The relatives of Uthra filed a complaint with the police after Vava Suresh expressed some doubts regarding her death. When Vava Suresh came to know that Uthra was bitten by a viper in the first incident, he had said that a viper can never reach the second floor all by itself.
Vava Suresh also asked a relative of Uthra to file a police complaint when he knew that Uthra died after being bitten by a cobra. He visited Uthra's house and observed that there is no chance for a snake to enter inside the house all by itself.
Vava Suresh's assumptions
- Uthra might have been sedated and hence she did not feel the pain when cobra bit her.
- Even if a cobra is thrown on someone's body, it tries to crawl away from the place as fast as it can. In this case, the snake might have been hurt to make it bite the woman or the accused might have used any device to make the snake bite her.
- If one is forcefully bitten by a snake, it causes rather deep injury.
Suraj to be taken in custody again
The custody period of accused Suraj and Suresh Kumar will end by Saturday. The probe team will take Suraj in custody again. Snake catcher Chavarukavu Suresh Kumar who is named accused in the case now is likely to be made an approver.
Suresh has been charged with a case for handing over weapon for murder as it was he who gave the snakes to Suraj. The police assume that though Suresh was unaware of Suraj's intention when he first gave the viper, later he had an idea of the plans when he handed over the cobra.
