Police say an Indian millionaire has been charged with murder in southern India after he allegedly rammed his SUV into his security guard he accused of being too slow.
Mohammed Nisham slammed his Hummer into the guard and hit him with an iron rod after pinning him against a wall as the gates were slow to open when the businessman returned home late one night two weeks ago, police official Biju Kumar said Tuesday, reported AP.
The guard, 47-year-old Chandra Bose, died Monday after being in hospital on life support.
Nisham has been taken into judicial custody.
This is not the first time the Kerala-based businessman has courted controversy. Pictures of his 9-year-old son driving a Ferrari had gone viral in 2013. Later, he made headlines when he allegedly locked up a female police officer inside his Rolls Royce, when he was asked to stop for a routine check. Then, he was booked for drink-driving and obstructing duty of an officer, reported 'Hindustan Times'.
Nisham was also held up after four young girls and a wannabe actor was taken into custody from his apartment in Kochi for participating in a rave party, where cocaine was used.
A collector of fast cars, his personal fleet includes Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Ranger Rover, Ferrari and Jaguar. A prominent tobacco supplier, Nisham has hotel and jewellery businesses, too.
Police seized all his vehicles and also recovered a licensed gun from his house, the report adds.
