Kerala police officer slammed for minor son driving official car

Thiruvananthapuram, March 2 (IANS) With the video of a Kerala senior police officer’s minor son driving an official car going viral, former chief minister V.S. Achuthanandan on Wednesday slammed the state police for not registering a case against the police officer.

On Tuesday, the visuals of Inspector General Suresh Raj Purohit’s minor son driving an official police vehicle surfaced, forcing Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala to order a probe into it by Assistant Director General of Police Rajesh Dewan.

“Why the authorities are playing slow, the evidence is quite clear and instead of a probe, police should immediately register a case against Purohit. He is a senior police official himself and the law is being violated but no action is being taken,” said Achuthanandan in a statement here.

Purohit is a top officer at the Kerala Police Academy in Thrissur and his son, a Class 11 student, was seen driving the official car in the campus.

In the visuals, while the minor son is at the wheel, another person is seen seated on the front seat.
