Kollam: With hours left to pronounce the sentence in the Uthra murder case, crucial visuals of accused Suraj handling the snake have come out. The accused was seen handling a snake with ease in a video shot with Suresh, the man who arranged the snake that took the life of Uthra.
In the video, Suresh says that he came to Suraj's house to catch a viper snake but could not catch it. The video also captured the conversation between the duo.
“Suraj had told me to bring a snake. He also told me not to bring anything a cobra because it might scare his parents and siblings. That's how a common krait was brought,” says Suresh in the leaked video.
During the initial stages of the investigation, Suraj told police that he did not know how to handle snakes and had no connection with Suresh. However, after checking his phone details, the police found evidence of his links with Suresh.
Police also received footage of Suraj handling snakes and this video was submitted to the court during the trial of the case.
The court on Monday had found Suraj guilty in the Uthra murder case. The accused will be sentenced on Wednesday.
