The Kerala High Court on Thursday directed the state police to submit details of training programmes conducted to educate police personnel on the safety measures to be adopted while escorting VIPs or VVIPs.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice K Vinod Chandran issued the directive, while considering a  petition filed by A Ranjith Narayanan of Ernakulam seeking a directive to the police force to ensure proper behaviour, while dealing with common people.

The petitioner submitted that the escort team of a minister had abused him during the ‘Emerging Kerala’ summit that was held here.

State Attorney P Vijayaraghavan submitted that regular refresher courses and training were being given to the police personnel who man  pilot and escort vehicles. Accepting the submission, the court asked the attorney to submit details of the training programmes.
