published on February 18, 2015

Chandra Bose, the security guard who was battered by Jihadi business tycoon Mohammed Nisham, succumbed to his injuries at a private hospital. 50 year old Chandra Bose suffered grievous injuries in the wee hours of 29 January at Sobha City in Puzhakkal when Nisham, the owner of King Beedi Co physically assaulted the guard and later rammed him with an SUV – a Hummer. The assault happened when Nisham got impatient as the guard delayed in opening apartment gates.

City Police Commissioner R Nishanthini said that Nisham, who is presently in judicial custody at Chavakkad sub-jail, will be charged with murder. Considering the fact that as many as 11 cases have been registered against the accused for indulging in violence prior to this particular incident, the police would consider slapping Kerala Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act (KAAPA) on him, she said.

Jihadi Nisham has as many as 11 cases pending against him that involves assaulting people in public and indulging in violence. Reportedly due to money power, he has not been convicted in any of these cases. But, with the security guard at his luxury apartment in Thrissur succumbing to injuries, the police would be slapping murder charges against the beedi tycoon.

“As the guard died in the hospital, the prosecution will have to prove before the court that the death was not due to medical negligence and was indeed due to the grievous injuries he suffered after the brutal attacked by Nisham at the apartment. At the least, the accused will be getting life imprisonment and going by the reports of his heinous act of assaulting the guard, ramming the guard with his car and beating him up with wooden log, there is every possibility of the trial court considering the case as the rarest of the rare and if so, the businessman will get capital punishment,” criminal lawyer at Kerala High Court C P Udhayabhanu said.

ACP R Jayachandran Pillai said the inquest was conducted on Monday and the autopsy of the body would be held on Tuesday.

The security guard was battling for life for the past 18 days. Doctors at Amala Institute of Medical Sciences, where the 50-year-old Chandra Bose was undergoing treatment, said the death came on Monday afternoon after his heart condition weakened. 

According to doctors, “Chandra Bose had as many as nine fractures on his ribs and five wounds on his intestine, which he suffered after being hit by the Hummer. Besides, there were fractures on his hips and vertebra as well. The left forearm of the guard was completely broken and his lungs were ruptured at several spots as the broken ribs pierced through them. As many as five surgeries were conducted on Chandrabose in a span of nearly three weeks.”

Nisham, police said, “rammed the Hummer into Chandrabose when he tried to escape the assault. He then dragged the guard into the car and drove to the parking lot where the physical assault was repeated. 

Hundreds visited the house of Chandrabose at Kandassankadavu in the afternoon to share the grief of the bereaved family. He is survived by wife Jamanthi, daughter Revathy, an engineering student and son Amal Dev, a Class XI student.
