Kollam: A team of veterinary surgeons performed postmortem on the cobra that Sooraj allegedly used in murdering his wife Uthra.
The post mortem was held at the premises of Uthra’s house in Anchal here.
This is the first time in the history of the state the post mortem of a snake is done in order to establish evidence in a murder case.
Sooraj allegedly brought the snake in a plastic container and tossed the snake over his sleeping wife.
