Chandrabose: Defense witnesses should be given security, says SC

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Monday directed police to give adequate security to the defense witnesses in the Chandrabose murder case. The court gave the directive on the plea of industrialist Muhammed Nisham, accused in the case, seeking to shift the trial outside Kerala. The court rejected his plea.

The state police chief and district police superintendent are in charge to provide security to defense witnesses and if any lapses are seen then Nisham can approach the court again, the court clarified.

Nisham’s plea wanted to shift the trial outside Kerala as he thought that he will not get justice if it is held in Kerala. His plea alleged that he is tortured in police custody and the witnesses are also threatened.
