THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan has demanded the government to investigate the financial sources of Mohammed Nisham, the businessman who has been arrested in Thrissur for attacking a security guard who later succumbed to his injuries. He also urged the government to announce financial assistance to the family of the victim, Chandrabose.
The murder reveals the arrogant attitude that any crime can be committed if one is wealthy. Killing a man because he was late in opening the gate is unheard of. Nisham’s financial sources are still shrouded in mystery. The media, quoting the police, had reported his annual income to be over Rs 100 crore and that he owns 16 cars which include high-end makes, Pinarayi Vijayan said in a statement. It has also been reported that Nisham runs hotels in India and abroad and a ‘beedi’ manufacturing company in Tirunelveli. Several incidents have now come to light proving that he is engaged in criminal activities using ill-gotten money. Nisham is also the owner of the flat where the police unearthed cocaine. Neither the police nor the legal establishment should show leniency to such a man, Pinarayi said.
The CPM state secretary also demanded the government and authorities of Sobha City, where Chandrabose was employed, to provide financial assistance to his family. The accused too should be made to pay compensation, he said, adding that the government should help out Chandrabose’s family in the education of his two children and construction of a house.
