In a Facebook post, the Chief Minister said he had already sought immediate intervention and action on the matter from the jail authorities.
“Media reports about Nisham getting various facilities in Kannur jail came to my notice. Details have been sought from the department”, he said in the post. Jail authorities have informed him that they had intervened and were taking appropriate action.
According to media reports, Nisham, who was convicted for the murder of the security guard by ramming his luxury car against him resulting in his death, was using two mobile phones in the prison and was in constant touch with his wife and business associates. His two brothers have complained that he had threatened them from the jail on his mobile phone.
