Thrissur, Jan. 21 (ANI): A Thrissur Court on Thursday awarded life sentence to beedi tycoon Mohammed Nisham in connection with the murder of security guard Chandrabose in 2015.
The court, which had convicted Nisham in this case yesterday, has also imposed a fine of Rs.71 lakh.
Thrissur District Additional Sessions Court Judge K P Sudheer found Nisham guilty of mowing down the guard of his apartments with his Hummer jeep on January 29 last year.
Nisham ran his jeep over the Sobha City security guard after he was infuriated with his delay in opening the gates. He was reportedly in an inebriated state.
According to reports, the Kerala Police had invoked provisions of Kerala Anti-social Activities (Prevention) Act (KAAPA) against Nisham, who is a serial offender and has 16 criminal cases against him.
Nisham is the son of beedi businessman Adakkaparambil Abdul Khadar. Khadar had founded King Beedi Company at Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu.
Nisham, who is Khadar’s second son, is now the managing director of King Beedi Company. (ANI)
