Shaibin Ashraf

Nilambur: Police found that a complainant of a theft case is the key accused in a barbaric murder that happened in Nilambur two years back.

Kaipancheri native Shaibin Ashraf, who lodged a complaint of theft against his friends, was found accused in murdering a local physician following a year-long physical abuse.

Police found that Shaibin had kept a local physician Shaba Sharif (60) under hostage for a year and continued assaulting him. When he died, Shaibin chopped the corpse of the physician into pieces and dumped it in the Chaliyar river. The information regarding the murder was revealed by Shaibin’s friends who were accused in the theft case. They confessed about their involvement in the murder also.

Shaibin had kidnapped Shaba Sharif in August 2019 to obtain the secret of a medicine for hemmorhoids (piles). Shaba was a physician at a clinic in Mysuru. By getting the secrets of medicines, Shaibin plotted that he could manufacture the medicines and trade it. But, as Shaba did not reveal the secret, Shaibin locked him in a room upstairs and tortured him to get the preparation of the medicine.

Shaba died in October 2020 due to assaults. Later, he chopped the dead body into pieces and dumped it in Chaliyar with the help of his friends Ponnakkaran Shihabuddin and Kaipancheri native Thangalakath Noushad and driver Nishad.

Shaibin had offered money to his friends who had helped him assault and kill Shaba. But, as Shaibin did not give the money even after two years, his friends stole it from Shaibin’s house. Following this, a complaint was lodged by Shaibin against his friends at Nilambur police station on April 24.

After the arrest of Noushad in the case, Shihabuddin and Nishad made a suicide threat by dousing kerosene in front of the secretariat on April 29. They claimed that Shaibin was forcing them to commit the crime and demanded justice from the police. Cantonment police took them into custody and handed them over to Nilambur police. The murder surfaced when all the three accused in the theft case were quizzed together. They had captured the visuals of torturing Shaba Sharif and stored it in a pen drive. It was handed over to the police.

The relatives of Shaba Sharif had registered a complaint at a police station in Mysuru. By showing some of the visuals to them, police confirmed that the deceased was Shaba.
