the indecent, inhumane killing of a worker by a rich boss !

Rich and famous are often portrayed as violent and inhumane ! 

Recently,  IANS and other papers reported that the actor Salman Khan did not possess a driving license when his car met with an accident in 2002, an officer at Regional Transport Office (RTO) on Monday (February 16) informed the Sessions court hearing the hit-and-run case.  It was stated that the witness produced the records of the actor’s driving license before the court when he was examined by Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat.    Khan's car had rammed into a roadside shop in suburban Bandra, killing one person and injuring four people, who were sleeping on the pavement, on the night of 28th  Sept  2002.  For years, his lawyers have argued that Mr Khan was not driving the car.

Away from this in a chilling instance, Daily Mail reports of an Indian millionaire charged with murder after 'crushing security guard with his Hummer because he was too slow to open the gates on his driveway' in India.

According to the report,  Tobacco tycoon Mohammed Nisham has been accused of killing a security guard because he was too slow opening the gates to his apartment complex in the Indian state of Kerala.  Mohammed Nisham is accused of chasing the guard with his SUV inside an apartment complex last month, squeezing him against a wall before beating him with an iron rod. He was reportedly angry over a delay in opening the gate after returning home late one night two weeks ago. The 50-year-old guard, K Chandrabose, died later,  after being in hospital on life-support in the southern Indian state of Kerala.

Doctors treating Chandrabose said 'his heart had not been functioning properly following the impact of the internal injuries,' according to the Press Trust of India news agency. Nisham was in custody in a jail near the town of Thrissur where he lives, police official  is quoted as saying.  He has had several police cases filed against him, including one for allowing his nine-year-old son to drive a Ferrari on a public road in 2013. He was granted bail on some cases and was ordered to pay fines for others.

India's economic boom has created a class of super-rich, whose excesses are frequently in the news. When he was charged with allowing his son to drive the Ferrari F430, police records showed he owned 18 high-end cars worth an estimated $4m (£2.6m), including a Bentley and a Lamborghini. He let his son take the wheel of the £127,000 supercar on his birthday - with nobody else in the vehicle except for his six-year-old brother. The boy drove it for several hundred metres along a road - all filmed by his proud family, who then uploaded the footage to YouTube.

Kerala Police registered a case against Nisham for uploading a video of an illegal act, sending out a wrong message to the world and allowing a child to drive a vehicle.  The ways of rich and famous are often …………………… and this is a seriously inhumane act indeed ..sad.
