Kollam, Petr.A court in Kollam, Kerala has sentenced the guilty husband, who killed his wife by being bitten by a cobra snake, to life imprisonment. A court in Kerala's Kollam today fixed the sentence for the guilty husband, who was found guilty of killing his wife by being bitten by a cobra. The court had on Monday convicted his sleeping wife of killing him by leaving a cobra. The court had said that the convict does not deserve sympathy for this heinous crime. The prosecution had sought a death sentence for the 32-year-old convict.
Cobra was thrown at sleeping wife
Suraj was found guilty on Monday under sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 328, and 201 of the IPC. The prosecution had argued that he had killed her on May 7, 2020, by injecting a cobra on him. A 25-year-old woman was already undergoing treatment for a snake bite, after which her husband released another cobra on her. On behalf of the prosecution, it has been said that she had survived the first snake bite, however, she died the second time due to a cobra bite.
Pole of such open wife's murder
During the investigation, the SIT found Suresh, a local snake handler, who later turned out to be a government witness. He gave snakes to Suraj and also trained him to keep snakes. On 6 May 2020, after Utara fell asleep, Sooraj allegedly threw a snake at him. The matter came to the fore in May last year when Utara's parents lodged a police complaint two days after his death. The parents of the deceased had alleged that Suraj and his family members harassed them over dowry for their daughter. Both had been married for two years.
