THRISSUR: Family members of Chandrabose, the security guard who was killed by business tycoon Mohammed Nisham aka Hummer Dad, came out against the LDF government stating that they have lost faith in getting justice from the government. They also demanded the appointment of C P Udayabhanu who appeared in the case as special prosecutor.

Mohammad Nisham, a beedi tycoon, had crushed Chandrabose with his Hummer SUV in 2015. The outburst came in the wake of a June 1 meeting, where the workers, natives and relatives of Nisham demanded a re-investigation along with parole to the millionaire. The family was also disturbed by reports that the government was trying to remit Nisham's prison term.

Following this, Chandrabose’s son Amal Dev wrote an open letter to chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan, which he posted on social media, demanding Udayabhanu to be appointed as a special prosecutor.

"We have been demanding that we do not want a government prosecutor, but Udayabhanu, who is thorough with the case. We are afraid that by the time government appointed  prosecutors get in-touch with the case, Nisham would be out. The chief minister did not respond to any of the letters send to him in this regard," Amal Dev told the New Indian Express.

“We have serious doubts about the case as Nisham's well wishers have demanded his parol and re- investigation,” he added.

On Jan 21, 2016, Nisham was sentenced with a life term by a Thrissur District Additional Sessions Court. As per the verdict, he will have to spend 38 years in jail for multiple crimes.

Danesh Madathiparambil, Amal Dev’s relative, said the family had also asked for a vigilance inquiry regarding reports that he was getting VIP treatment inside the jail.

"We had met the CM and made the request but got no response. Our doubts have increased after we received information that the High Court has sought details about the case from the district court,” said Danesh.
