Soumya murder: No obstacle to file case against Forensic expert Dr Unmesh

Kochi: The High Court on Friday observed that there was no legal obstacle to register case against forensics expert Dr Unmesh, who gave a statement in favour of the opposition in the Soumya murder case.

Rejecting a plea filed by Unmensh challenging the verdict of the Fast Track Court in Thrissur, a High Court bench of Justice P.R. Ramachandran Nair and Justice P. Kamal Pasha opined that there was no reason to alter the Thrissur Fast Track Court judgment of Nov 11, 2011 which sentenced Govindachami, a resident of Tamil Nadu, to death and also slapped on him a fine of Rs.1 lakh for the brutal rape of 23-year-old Soumya.

Unmesh, who appeared in the Thrissur court as an opposition witness, gave a statement which was against the prosecution-stand. While giving the verdict, the court had observed that Unmesh tried to mislead the court.

The Health department had suspended Unmesh following the court observation.

The victim was travelling in a women's compartment of the Ernakulam-Shornur passenger train. She was on her way to her home in Shornur when a marriage proposal for her was being discussed.

The brutal incident took place Feb 1, 2011, when the victim was assaulted and then thrown out of the moving train. The accused Chamiya also jumped out and hit the victim's head with a stone after raping her.

The victim died in a hospital Feb 6.
