Kerala bizman gets life for killing guard with his Hummer
A Kerala court on Thursday sentenced a tobacco magnate to life for killing a security guard with his luxury SUV. The convict, Mohammed Nisham, was found guilty of murder by the Thrissur district additional sessions court on Wednesday. Rejecting the prosecution’s demand for death penalty, the court also imposed a Rs70-lakh fine on the businessman — Rs50 lakh of which will be given to the widow of the victim, Chandra Bose. However, sources said that Nisham won’t be getting off easy with the life term, which runs for 14 years, because he would have to spend 24 additional years behind bars under eight sections other than murder in the case. This means that the 39-year-old would have to spend the next 38 years in prison.
