Thrissur: A security guard, who was hit with a car by a businessman, in a fit of rage, succumbed to injuries on Monday.
Chandrabose, the security guard, died at a local hospital here where he had been on life-support.
Muhammad Nizam, managing director of Tirunelveli-based King Beedi Co., allegedly rammed his luxury vehicle on Chandrabose, a security guard of a posh apartment complex where the accused lives with his family, for delay in opening the gate, injuring him seriously.
