THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Hakkim alias Gym Hakkim was arrested on Monday in connection with the death of Sreedharan (56), an undertrial prisoner, on December 20.  He was arrested after the police received Sreedharan’s scan report which verified that Sreedharan’s death was due to cerebral haemorrhage.

 Hakkim, who was arrested under Goonda Act and released on Dec 22, was summoned by the police on Sunday. Both Hakkim and Sreedharan, who was remanded in an abkari case, were undergoing treatment at the cell room in Medical College Hospital. Sreedharan, a resident of Maranalloor, was critically injured on Dec19 and  succumbed to internal bleeding on Dec 20. On subsequent interrogation, it was revealed that the death was unnatural.   ‘’We suspect Hakkim as the culprit since the there were two cerebral haemorrhages  in Sreedharan’s scan report. If somebody falls or hit himself against the wall, the  injury would only be in one spot,’’ said CI, A Pramodkumar.  The police version is that a scuffle had broken out between Sreedharan and Hakkim after Sreedharan ate the latter’s food without permission. Hakkim is a  history-sheeter who had been accused in several criminal cases. He was presented before the Additional CJM.
