Hummer murder case: Kerala court finds businessman Mohammed Nisham guilty

Thrissur (Kerala): A court in Kerala on Wednesday convicted a businessman of running down a security guard with his car in a fit of rage.

Thrissur additional district and sessions judge K.P. Sudhir pronounced Mohammed Nisham guilty and said the quantum of punishment would be announced on Thursday.

The prosecution had said that Nisham rammed his Hummer vehicle into 47-year-old Chandra Bose on 29 December, 2014, and also beat him up. Bose was working as a security guard in a posh residential complex near Thrissur.

After battling for life for 48 days at a hospital, Bose succumbed to his injuries on 15 February last year.

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.

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.
