PALAKKAD: A 19-year-old teen was arrested for running his car over the body of a police officer during a vehicle inspection in Thrithala. The Thrithala police took into custody Alan of Njangattiri from Pattambi. He tried to kill Thrithala sub inspector Shashi Kumar by running his car over the cop. The sub inspector is undergoing treatment in the hospital.

The incident happened Saturday night at 10.30 pm. Shashi and his team, who were on a regular inspection at night, saw a vehicle lying suspiciously in Paruthurmangalam and came near to examine it. When the patrolling team went near the car to enquire things, the car reversed and the cops soon shifted to one side. In the meanwhile, Shashi Kumar and another cop stood in front of the car. At that time, Alan ran his car over the cop and fled from there.

The vehicle was taken into custody after an investigation was conducted focusing on the CCTV footage. Thrithala circle inspector said the vehicle deliberately ran over the sub inspector. Police said the owner of the vehicle is not Alan but a native of Pattambi. The police had intensified search for Alan and he was caught from Pattambi this afternoon. The police are also collecting information about the youth who was with Alan.
