A court in Kollam, Kerala, India, convicted a 32-year-old man named P. Sooraj for releasing a cobra snake on his wife while she was asleep and poisoning her with its bite. The prosecution requested the death penalty for the 32-year-old man.
Sooraj was found guilty under sections 302 (murder), 328 (medicine to cause harm), 307 (attempted murder) and 201 (destroying evidence) of the Indian Penal Code.
He had tried the same thing before.
Sooraj’s unfortunate wife, Uthra, 25, encountered another snake attack while she was receiving treatment at her home. In the research, it was understood that his wife was responsible for the first snake bite. The woman who managed to survive the first attack died in the second.
Uthra’s family expressed satisfaction with the decision. Uthra’s father, Rajasenan, who was present at the court, said, “I am happy that my daughter is finally getting justice. We expect Sooraj to receive the maximum sentence. “We pray that no other parent experiences what we went through,” he said. In natural (accidental) bites, scars span 1.7 to 1.8 centimeters, but in Uthra’s body it was 2.3 to 2.8 centimeters, Kerala Police Chief Anil Kant said, “This definitely shows that there was pressure on the cobra snake.”
