Uthara Murder Case

Kollam: The additional session court here will pronounce on Monday the verdict in the cold-blooded murder case of Uthra. The case which sent shockwaves across Kerala and triggered debate on crime against women is at a crucial turning point.

On May 7, 2020, Uthra was found dead due to snakebite at her house in Anchal. According to the police, Suraj, who married Uthra for financial gain, killed her in a planned murder. The charge sheet was filed on the 82nd day of Suraj's arrest. The investigation was conducted through scientific methods, including dummy trial.

The police conducted an experiment with a dummy of Uthra to collect evidence of snakebite. A police team led by a former rural SP conducted the dummy experiment July last year. Mathrubhumi News has received the video footage of this experiment.

The unique experiment was performed as every minute evidence was crucial in the case. The experiment was conducted at the State Training Institute of the Forest Department. The police team submitted video footage of the experiment and documents to the court.
