Businessman found guilty of murdering guard with Hummer

Thrissur (PTI): A Kerala court today convicted beedi tycoon Mohammed Nisham, who had crushed to death a security guard with his luxury vehicle Hummer over delay in opening the gates of a posh residential complex here on January 29 last year.

The quantum of punishment would be pronounced here tomorrow by the Additional Sessions Court which found Nisham guilty under various sections of IPC including 302 (murder), 326 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons, 427 (committing mischief).


The prosecution today argued for maximum punishment of death sentence and a compensation of Rs 5 crore to the family of the 51-year-old security guard Chandrabose.  Public Prosecutor C P Udayabhanu submitted that the “society wanted the maximum punishment meted out to the accused, who was a threat to the society”.

Police charge sheet had contained scientific evidence and other documents to prove the charges, including murder, against Nisham.

Though Nisham’s wife Amal was a witness to the incident, she had later turned hostile. Statements of 12 eyewitnesses, including that of Amal, had been been recorded under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

Besides, statements of over 100 witnesses had also been recorded and attached with the charge sheet.

Nisham, who was in an inebriated state, had allegedly in a fit of rage assaulted Chandrabose and later rammed his luxury vehicle into him over delay in opening the gate of his residential complex here on January 29 last year.

The guard succumbed to injuries on February 16. The case had evoked widespread protests across the state.


  1. A man having beedi business is owning a Hummer and living in style. So, others should get into beedi business and live in style. A word of caution: After becoming neo-rich, do not run over people with Hummer or other swanky vehicles. It is my personal observation that people who have progressed from rags to riches tend to be very arrogant, like to show off and develop an exaggerated importance of themselves.

    Now, it has been reported that this man who has been found to be guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment, but the accused will move the higher court.

      When a man who peddles Yoga and Herbal products (a particular one which can allegedly ‘cure’ even EBOLA and dictate the gender (Male, of course) of ones child can ‘enjoy’ Z security in India and even own an Isle in Scotland, why can’t a Beedi business owner own a silly Hummer?

      Endaano Nelson Lewise?

      • Even better, imagine a foreign ‘tourist’ being the head of a powerful political party and nominated for highest office!!! No wonder why her biggest supporters are all brainwashed by foreign masters over centuries!!

  2. The prosecution has asked Nisham to be given capital punishment and made to pay Rs. 5 crores to the family of the guard who was skilled, because this guy is worth Rs. 5,000 crores. With this money and clout, I wonder how he was not able to bull-doze the Indian judicial system.

    Hats off to the judiciary in Trichur.

    Sir,Only difference in the case to Nitish katara or Salman Khan he has no political backing. If he ever made is mind attend next year ‘Kite Festival’ in Gujarat he will also be considered as ‘BEING HUMAN’.

    We should appreciate the judge in the case for unbiased ruling in favor to deceased.

    Jai Hind

    • Shaikh Mohd. Rizwan,

      This man has lot of influence and it has been reported in the electronic media that a top police officer spent 90 minutes with him, though we do not know what did they discuss.

      However, the people have to credit the judge. He may not have succumbed to pressure and may have been a hard nut to crack.
