Kerala businessman found guilty for running down a guard.
Thrissur: The court, early today convicted a businessman for running down a security guard with his car in a fit of rage.
The verdict was announced by the Thrissur additional district and sessions judge K.P. Sudhir. He pronounced Mohammed Nisham guilty and said the quantum of punishment would be announced on Thursday.
The prosecution has said that Nisham rammed his car, a Hummer, into 47-year-old Chandra Bose, on December 29, 2014. He was also said to have been beaten up. Chandra Bose was working as a security guard in a posh residential complex near here.
Chandra Bose succumbed to his injuries on February 15, last year. He was battling for his life for 48 days at a hospital until he was declared dead.
Prosecution counsel Udayabhanu told reporters that they have sought maximum punishment for the businessman.
“Since he also claims to be a wealthy businessman, we have asked for a compensation of Rs.5 crore for the bereaved family,” said Udayabhanu.
At the same time, the Kerala government had announced a government job for Bose’s wife. Owner of the Kings Group of Companies, Nisham courted controversy after his seven-year-old son’s photograph driving his car was put up on social media. In another case, he allegedly abused a woman police official for checking his vehicle.
