Sharon murder case: Greeshma faces setback; SC rejects plea to transfer trial to Tamil Nadu


NEW DELHI: Supreme Court has rejected the transfer plea filed by the accused Greeshma seeking to transfer the Parassala Sharon Raj murder case trial to Tamil Nadu. The petition sought to transfer the trial to the court in Kanyakumari. Greeshma's mother and uncle, who are the other accused in the case, had filed a transfer petition.

The petition demanded that the trial should be shifted to Tamil Nadu as the house of the accused is in the Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu. Currently, the proceedings related to the case are progressing in Neyyatinkara Additional Sessions Court. The petition was filed in the Supreme Court pointing out that holding the trial in Kerala would hinder the justice to the accused and that there would be practical difficulties in reaching Kerala from Kanyakumari for trial proceedings.

Greeshma poisoned her lover Sharon at her house in Palukal, Tamil Nadu on October 14, 2022. Sharon was admitted to the hospital but his life could not be saved. Sharon died on October 25th after battling the odds for several days. Sharon did not suspect his girlfriend Greeshma even in his dying declaration.

Parassala police had concluded that it was a normal death. However, later, after the interrogation and investigation conducted by the special investigation team, it was found that Greeshma killed Sharon by poisoning him.

The murder was to prevent Sharon from becoming a hindrance to Greeshma getting married to someone else. Greeshma's mother and uncle were made accused in the case based on the police finding that they tried to save her. Greeshma's mother Sindhu and uncle Nirmalakumaran Nair were also arrested for the crime of trying to destroy evidence. While the mother and uncle were granted bail earlier in the case, Greeshma was granted bail only recently. Meanwhile, due to a problem with a fellow inmate, Greeshma, who was in the Attakulangara Women's Jail, was transferred to the Mavelikara Special Sub Jail.
