Thrissur, Feb 17: Mohammed Nisham, a Kerala-based controversial businessman claimed the life of a security guard by ramming his Hummer SUV into him, when the latter caused a little delay in opening the entry gate, at his residence.
The millionaire businessman's brutality didn't end there. He slammed the 47-year-old guard K Chandra Bose against a wall and beaten him with an iron rod.
Two weeks after the horrific incident took place, Bose succumbed to the internal injuries at a private hospital on Monday, Feb 16, even as four surgeries were carried out in the last 48 days to save his life.
His heart ceased functioning at 13:40 hours and he was declared dead, doctors said.
Nisham, owner of the Kings Group of Companies, has been taken into judicial custody, after murder charges were framed against him.
Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy visited Bose at the hospital and said that his treatment expanses will be paid by the state government.
Shockingly, this is not the first time that Nisham has embroiled himself into controversy. He is an habitual offender in breaking the laws and known for his inhumane nature.
A report said that Nisham, who has a fleet of luxurious cars including Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Ranger Rover, Ferrari and Jaguar, is a tobacco tycoon, owns a hotel and also has jewellery business.
In 2013, his 9-year-old son was caught driving Ferrari and his video had gone viral on social media.
In another incident, he had locked a female police officer in his Rolls Royce for checking his vehicle and verbally abused her.
Previously, he had also been booked with drunken driving and was earlier arrested after four young girls and an upcoming film actor was taken into custody from his apartment in Kochi for participating in a rave party, where cocaine was used.
The police has reportedly seized all his cars and has recovered a licensed gun from his house.
Nisham's bail plea hearing has been postponed to Wednesday, Feb 18.
The Left opposition has called for a local shutdown to protest the security guard's death in his home town near here.
