Kerala court agrees to Latvian woman’s plea to watch sister murder trial online

The Latvian Embassy and IIzie had approached the Kerala High Court with the request as her visa expired after being here for the past nine months waiting to watch the trial, which was delayed for various reasons but has now reached its last leg.

The Thiruvananthapuram First Class Judicial Magistrate court agreed to make online arrangements for her to watch it online from Latvia.

The victim, her partner Andrew, and Ilzie had arrived in Kerala for ayurvedic treatment at a facility in Thiruvananthapuram’s outskirts when she went missing on March 14, 2018.

She was last seen hiring an auto-rickshaw to Kovalam. She was not carrying her passport or mobile phone with her when she went missing.

Even though the police launched a manhunt, it was on April 20, the victim’s highly decomposed body was found in a marshy area near the famed Kovalam tourist destination. An autopsy pointed to strangulation.

Following the subsequent probe the police arrested two local youths, Umesh and Udayan, who are relatives and have been functioning as unregistered guides and do not have a clean track record.

The trial is now expected to get over very soon.
