The Kerala High Court this week reserved its verdict on the bail plea moved by Greeshma, the prime accused in the murder of 23-year-old Thiruvananthapuram resident Sharon Raj. [Greeshma @ Sreekutty & Ors. v State of Kerala].Greeshma, who is said to be the former girlfriend of Sharon Raj, stands accused of murdering him by giving him a poisoned drink.Justice Mohammad Nias CP heard the bail plea moved by Greeshma and reserved his verdict in the matter on September 5..In October 2022, Sharon Raj died due to organ failure after he was allegedly poisoned by Greeshma. They met when they were students at a private college at Kanyakumari where Sharon was studying radiology and Greeshma was studying literature. According to the prosecution, the two had allegedly been in a relationship for around a year but Greeshma wanted to break it off as her family had fixed her marriage with another man. Since Sharon was not willing to let the relationship end, Greeshma along with her mother and uncle hatched a conspiracy to kill Sharon by poisoning him, the prosecution alleged. When Sharon visited Greeshma at her house in Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu Greeshma allegedly gave him a drink laced with a poison that she herself had prepared. Her mother and uncle allegedly concealed the bottle containing the poison. Sharon Raj's health is said to have deteriorated rapidly in the next few days. On October 25, he died as a result of multiple organ failure. In less than a week, Greeshma was arrested. Later, her mother and uncle were also arrested in connection with the case. Greeshma's mother and uncle were able to later secure bail but Greeshma has remained behind bars. This led her to approach the High Court seeking bail. The Court is expected to deliver its verdict in the coming weeks. .Greeshma is being represented by advocate Sasthamangalam S Ajithkumar.On a related note, another single judge, Justice PV Kunhikrishnan, is presently seized of a plea moved by Greeshma along with her mother and maternal uncle, who are co-accused in the murder case.The joint plea challenges the refusal of a Kerala trial court to transfer the case to Tamil Nadu, which the three accused argue is the court that has the appropriate territorial jurisdiction since the alleged incidents took place in Tamil Nadu.Justice Kunhikrishnan had admitted the plea earlier this week and ordered a stay on the trial court order for a period of three weeks.
