news Chandrabose Murder Friday, October 09, 2015 - 16:17

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Mohammed Nisham, the Kerala businessman accused of murdering Chandrabose, a security guard at the apartment where the businessman lived.

While hearing the case, the bench headed by Justice Dipak Mishra observed, “Mohammed Nisham didn't value a common man's life and is a person with egocentric megalomaniac attitude."

The court made more scathing remarks and said that arrogance and impudence were observed in Nisham. The court also made it clear that the bail was being rejected as Nisham’s criminal background and statements made by witnesses were against him.

In an incident on January 2015, Mohammed Nisham, the beedi tycoon based in Thissur had rammed Chandrabose with his Hummer vehicle. Following that Chandrabose succumbed to his injuries on February 16.

Speaking on behalf of the defendant, Gopal Subramanium argued, “Nisham had no intent to kill but lost control of the Hummer as it was a heavy vehicle.”
