Chief Judicial Magistrate R R Kamath has forbidden a petition filed by film actor Baiju, regarding the return of his licensed pistol which the police had earlier confiscated from him. This was following a case which was earlier registered at the Museum police station way back in 2005.
Deputy Director of Prosecution (DDP) V. Radhakrishnan Nair has stated clearly, "It will be dangerous to allow a man such as the petitioner who is prone to drinking and easily provoked to pull out the weapon (pistol) and threaten someone. It will be a folly of the worst kind to put a pistol in the hands of such a man." The Chief Judicial Magistrate has fully accepted the prosecutor"s view and has therefore rejected the plea regarding the return of the pistol.
Baiju had earlier got engaged in a fierce argument with Madhu Mohanan Nair during a party held at Thiruvananthapuram Club way back on November 6, 2005. Baiju had come armed with a boxing block (knuckle-duster) and pistol. Following the argument Baiju withdrew his boxing block and pounced upon Madhu Mohanan Nair and smashed his nasal bone badly. This is when the reel image and the real image hardly matches.
