Thiruvananthapuram: Police on Monday recorded the arrest of Greeshma SS, the prime accused in the murder case of Sharon Raj, a resident of Parassala from the medical college hospital here. She is undergoing treatment for alleged suicide attempt while in police custody. She drank disinfectant at the Nedumangad police station.
According to police, Greeshma confessed to them on Sunday that she poisoned Sharon to get rid of him after her marriage was fixed with another man. She told the police that she plotted the crime all alone. However, the police and Sharon's family are suspicious of her statement.
