A juvenile court in Kerala has ordered police to file a case and launch a probe into the alleged incident relating to the minor son of an Inspector General of Police driving his father’s official car.

The Thrissur Juvenile Justice Court asked the police to file an FIR into the incident and also to file a case against IG Suresh Raj Purohit on charges of allowing a minor to drive official vehicle.

The order was issued on a petition filed by one PD Joseph.

The 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 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.
