Thrissur: Jan 21; Kerala businessman tycoon Mohammed Nisham, who in a fit of rage rammed his luxury car Hummer against a security guard leading to his death last year, was sentenced to life and slapped a fine of Rs 71 lakh on Thursday. Rs 50 lakh from the fine would be given to the widow of the deceased guard, Chandra Bose, the court order said.
Nisham was drunk, and enraged because of the delay in opening the gate of the township when he reached there at 3.30 a.m. after a party. Infuriated with the delay, the businessmen reportedly drove his SUV into the guard, pinning him into the wall, then got out of the car to beat him up.
