Kerala court orders probe in minor driving IG Police’s official car


A court in Kerala has ordered case to be registered against an Inspector General (IG) after his minor son was caught driving an official police vehicle inside the police academy earlier this month.

The Thrissur Juvenile Justice Court, directed that a case be registered under section 156(3) of the CrPC and Sect 23 of the Juvenile Justice Act and a probe conducted.

The order in its regard was issued by Juvenile Justice Board Principal Magistrate on a petition filed by one P D Joseph.

Earlier, as reported by news agency PTI, the Kerala High Court had restrained the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau from taking further action in the case as the matter did not come under the purview of the bureau.

The state government had also ordered a probe, headed by ADGP (Training) Rajesh Diwan, earlier this month after the incident came to light.

The probe was ordered after television channels earlier this month aired visuals of Police Academy Director and IG Suresh Rajpurohit’s son, a higher secondary student, driving an official car in the campus.
