Thiruvananthapuram: Greeshma, prime accused in the murder of her male friend, revealed that she conducted the ‘juice challenge” to kill Sharon Raj. The deceased had earlier shared videos with Greeshma on his social media by calling it “juice challenge”. The video showed Sharon holding bottles of juice. Sharon is said to have vomited after drinking the juice.
She revealed these details during Crime Branch questioning. However, it is still unclear what chemical was used in the juice.
Following the death of Sharon, his family alleged Greeshma had given juice to the deceased several times in the past. They told police that Greeshma used to serve juice to Sharon every time they went out together.
Meanwhile, Greeshma was brought to her residence to collect evidence on Sunday. On Saturday, the lock of the house, sealed by the police, was found damaged. Police suspect that this was aimed to tamper with the evidence.
Greeshma (22) was detained for allegedly serving an ayurvedic decoction laced with pesticide to Sharon Raj, a native of Parassala, as her marriage was fixed with another man. Later, Greeshma reportedly confessed to the police that she poisoned Sharon.
She said that she planned the crime alone. However, the police were wary of her statement and decided to probe the role played by her relatives.
