Proving that jail bars are no barrier for the influential to keep in touch with the outside world, it has come to light that Muhammed Nisham, the beedi-baron and convict in a murder case is allowed to use the phone inside the prison. 

 

The incident is considered a gross violation of law by jail authorities.

 


Nisham's siblings who are also looking after his  ₹5000-crore business empire have lodged a complaint that the tycoon has issued death threats following a feud.

 


The duo has handed over the details of two cell phone numbers used by Nisham from inside the prison and has accused their brother of threatening to eliminate the whole family if the business turnover is not used to run the case. 

 

 


Thrissur Rural SP R Nishanthini has confirmed receiving the complaint from Abdul Nizar and Abdul Razzaq, who have alleged that while being taken to Bengaluru to collect evidence, Nisham was accompanied by some of the company staff and friends with full knowledge of jail authorities.

 


Meanwhile, Asianet News has released a phone conversation revealing that Nisham, who is lodged in a single cell in the high-security Block 10 of the high-security Kannur prison is, in fact, available on the phone.

 


Earlier there were reports that the dreaded criminal, who was given double life term for the murder of a security personal was living in the lap of luxury behind bars. The family of the victim had lodged a complaint raising the same allegations a few weeks back.

 


Nisham was convicted by the Thrissur Additional District and Sessions Court for brutally beating up and ramming his Hummer car on Chandrabose, a hapless security staff in the wee hours of January 28, 2015, at his posh residential complex at Sobha City in Thrissur for delaying in opening the gates. The victim later succumbed to his injuries.
