THRISSUR:  After an eventful trial that lasted around three months, Thrissur Additional Sessions Court Judge K P Sudhir on Wednesday pronounced businessman Mohammed Nisham guilty of murdering Chandrabose, a security guard at the Sobha City. The quantum of the sentence will be pronounced on Thursday.

The accused has been found guilty under IPC sections - 302, murder, 326, voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means, 324, voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons, 323, voluntarily causing hurt, 506 (i), death threat, 427, destruction of property, 447, criminal trespass. Nisham had rammed Chandrabose with his Hummer in the wee hours of January 29, 2015, ultimately resulting in his death.

Special Public Prosecutor C P Udayabhanu and defence counsel led by M Mohammed presented their respective cases before the court. Udayabhanu pleaded that the accused should be awarded death sentence, considering the case in the rarest of rare category, referencing 12 Supreme Court judgments from 1973 to 2015.
