Kollam: The post mortem of the snake used in the Uthra murder case has been completed. The procedure which began on Tuesday morning was completed in the afternoon. Doctors said they received crucial evidences from the carcass that was exhumed.
The cobra was 152 centimetres long. The fangs, bone and brain of the snake have been collected. The fangs were 6 cm long. These will be sent to labs for expert examination. DGP Loknanth Behera had said that a DNA test of the snake would also be conducted.
Police want to prove that the exhumed snake was the same reptile that bit Uthra and caused her death. As there are no witnesses or circumstantial evidence in the case, the scientific evidence from the snake is the only hope for police.
Earlier, Rural SP Harishankar had claimed that the case has many challenges. However, he added that the police were planning to submit the charge sheet within 80 days at any cost.
