KOZHIKODE: The 21st witness has given a powerful testimony against the suspect Jolly as the witness examination of the Roy Thomas murder case in the Koodathai series of murders is in progress. Johnson, the 21st witness, testified that before the police opened the grave, Jolly requested that the remains be removed. Johnson testified before Kozhikode Special Court Judge SR Shyamlal that he had a close friendship with Jolly.

It was when the Vadakara District Crime Branch decided to open and inspect the graves in connection with the Koodathai case, the first accused Jolly approached her relatives and friends for help. Witness Johnson testified that Jolly told him on October 2, 2019 that opening the graves would be a problem. The crime will be proved if the police examine the remains. Johnson told the special court in Kozhikode that Jolly demanded the remains be removed from the graves. Johnson said that Jolly had confessed that she had poisoned Annamma Thomas and killed five people with cyanide and that it was Shaji who gave her the cyanide. MS Mathew's lawyer Shaheer Singh argued that MS Mathew did not have a name as Shaji. Johnson insisted that MS Mathew was called Shaji. In Johnson's statement, it is said that he had a close friendship with the first accused and Jolly had handed over the gold to carry out the case.
