THRISSUR: With the death of security guard Chandrabose on Monday, noose around the neck of controversial businessman Muhammed Nisham is tightening, say legal experts.
Nisham has as many as 11 cases pending against him that involves assaulting people in public and indulging in violence. Reportedly due to money power, he has not been convicted in any of these cases. But, with the security guard at his luxury apartment in Thrissur succumbing to injuries, the police would be slapping murder charges against the beedi tycoon.
“As the guard died in the hospital, the prosecution will have to prove before the court that the death was not due to medical negligence and was indeed due to the grievous injuries he suffered after the brutal attacked by Nisham at the apartment. At the least, the accused will be getting life imprisonment and going by the reports of his heinous act of assaulting the guard, ramming the guard with his car and beating him up with wooden log, there is every possibility of the trial court considering the case as the rarest of the rare and if so, the businessman will get capital punishment,” criminal lawyer at Kerala High Court C P Udhayabhanu told ‘Express’.
ACP R Jayachandran Pillai said the inquest was conducted on Monday and the autopsy of the body would be held on Tuesday.
Hundreds visited the house of Chandrabose at Kandassankadavu in the afternoon to share the grief of the bereaved family. He is survived by wife Jamanthi, daughter Revathy, an engineering student and son Amal Dev, a Class XI student.
