A Juvenile court in Kerala has ordered the police to file a case and launch a probe into the alleged incident relating to the minor son of IGP Suresh Rajpurohit driving his father’s official car inside the Police Academy campus in Thrissur.

The order in its regard was issued by Juvenile Justice Board Principal Magistrate on a petition filed by one PD Joseph. The court directed that a case be registered under section 156(3) of the CrPC, under Section 23 of the Juvenile Justice Act, and that a probe be conducted. The state government had also ordered a probe, headed by ADGP (Training) Rajesh Diwan, earlier in March after the incident came to light.

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