Lawyer moves Kerala High Court seeking court-appointed probe into handcuffing of Kollam advocate by police

Even though the State government has appointed Inspector General of Police, Thiruvananthapuram Range, to inquire and submit a report, the petitioner contended that such blatant violation of the top court’s orders requires a court appointed probe headed by a former judge of the High Court.

In spite of these orders, if a 100% literate State like Kerala has its police pick up an advocate and handcuff him in blatant violation of all laws, and that too in this modern world where everything is captured on mobile phones and goes viral within seconds on social media, shows how dangerous the police force can be if they go unchecked. While the Petitioner made his research to trace the chain of command, this Hon’ble Court ought to appoint a former Judge of this Hon’ble Court to inquire and find out the name of every police official who were present and were involved in the blatant violation of the directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court which is taught specifically to them during their training,” the plea stated.

The petitioner stressed that the Court must not be a mute spectator and must show its willingness to enforce the directions of the Supreme Court as the same is a law declared under Article 141of the Constitution of India.

On these grounds, the petitioner has sought orders from the Court to summon and punish the erring police officials for contempt of court.
