Thiruvananthapuram: Crime Branch began investigation of the mysterious death of Parassala native Sharon on Sunday. The Crime Branch team will soon record the statement of Sharon’s friend, who offered ayurvedic medicine and juice to Sharon hours before his death. The girl was directed to arrive at the office of the rural SP on Sunday morning.
The investigating team will be led by rural SP D Shilpa and ASP Zulfikar. Though police tried to take the statement of the girl on the same day of Sharon’s death, more details could not be collected due to her poor health condition. However, a detailed interrogation will be held on Sunday.
Meanwhile, police or the doctors who treated Sharon could not uncover the mystery behind the death. The cause of death was not even identified after autopsy. A chemical examination of the internal organs will only reveal the death cause, informed the investigating team. Rural SP had informed that a special medical team would be set up to probe this.
Sharon had sought treatment at Parassala hospital on October 14, Valiyathura hospital on October 15 and at an ENT specialist in a private hospital on October 16 before being admitted to the Govt Medical College. Sharon’s family alleged that he was poisoned by the girl with whom he had a romantic relationship. He did not reveal anything about ayurvedic medicine to the doctors during consultations. His bystander had informed the doctor about the medicine Sharon consumed.
