The News Minute | March 25, 2015 | 5:05 pm IST The Thrissur vigilance court has ordered an enquiry to look into alleagations that Kerala Director General of Police (DGP) (Law and Order) K S Balasubramaniam and eight other officers including former Thrissur Police Commissioner Jacob Job were tampering ongoing investigation in the Hummer murder case in which businessman Mohammed Nisham is the chief accused. There has been speculation that the police was trying to save the accused businessman. One major turn in the case occurred with the Chief Whip of Kerala government P C George alleging that a senior police officer in the state was attempting to scuttle the investigation. George told The News Minute that Director General of Police (DGP) K S Balasubramaniam was allegedly trying to manipulate the case enquiry. He has also alleged that the DGP had an āinappropriateā relationship with Mohammed Nisham, who has been charged with murder of 50-year-old Chandrabose, a security guard at an apartment in Thrissur. He also claimed that former Thrissur Police Commissioner Jacob Job had been made a scapegoat. He said that Job was suspended allegedly because he ensured that the investigation was carried out according to due process. Another factor that is being seen as indication of the police trying to scuttle the case, is that the police allegedly failed to collect key evidence in the case. The media reported that the clothes worn by Chandrabose when he was injured were missing and that police had not bothered to collect it though it was crucial evidence. The vigilance court added that the enquiry report should be submitted by June 25. Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
