As per the findings in the charge sheet submitted by the crime branch, Sriram deliberately tried to destroy evidence in the case charged against him.
The IAS officer was named as the first accused in the case relating to the death of the journalist KM Basheer on August 3, 2019 in Thiruvananthapuram.
The chargesheet said Sriram was overspeeding - at a speed of over 100 kilometre per hour - while hitting the motorcycle which claimed the life of KM Basheer, the unit chief of Siraj daily.
The chargesheet clearly states that it's a case of drunken driving. Wafa Firoz, the owner and co-driver, has been named as the second accused and charged with abetment of the crime.
