Earlier the Supreme Court of India had rejected his bail plea, saying the case was "an example of how the rich have become entirely egocentric and megalomaniacs".
Nisham had run into several controversies in the past also. In 2013, he had allowed his son, then nine-year-old, to drive Ferrari in their residential complex in Thrissur, leading to a police case. In the same year he was arrested after he allegedly tried to prevent a woman police inspector, T Devi, during a routine inspection. Nisham was under the influence of alcohol. He started arguing, saying no police station in Kerala was good enough to park his vehicle. To prevent him from driving away, Devi got into the car to take out the keys. At this point, Nisham, who was outside, locked the doors with his remote control, trapping her inside. More policemen arrived and it was only after a heated argument that Nisham let the sub-inspector out.
Recently he has been in the news for having a personal helper in jail alluding to vip treatment where he is serving his term. DIG prisons is investigating the issue.
