Thrissur: A court here on Wednesday rejected the bail application of Muhammad Nizam, who was arrested for roughing up a 50-year-old security guard by allegedly ramming his luxury vehicle into him in a fit of rage last month.
The guard, Chandarabose, died in a nearby private hospital on Monday.
The Thrissur First Additional District and Sessions Court accepted the arguments of the prosecution that the accused had reached in out of court settlement, using his influence, in several cases filed against him.
The prosecution also informed the court that the High Court had, in the previous week, cancelled three of such cases.
Nizam allegedly roughed up the security guard and then dragged him to the wall of the parking lot and ran his Hummer vehicle into his body for delay in opening the gate of the apartment complex, where the victim worked.
Police had earlier booked Nizam for posting photographs of his seven-year-old son driving a Ferrari on the social media.
