Drunks in Kerala will never stop amusing us, but this time, their antics at a police station seem to have got officials into trouble. 

At 2am on Sunday, three youngsters in Kollam were picked up the police after they received complaints that they were creating nuisance in public spaces after getting drunk, according to the police. 

Soon after, they were taken to the Shakthikulangara police station, commonly known as Kavanadu police station. A selfie of the three youngsters from the police station, with one of them wearing a police cap, has since gone viral online. The photo was posted by one of the youngsters, Saj Aloysius, with the status update, “Feeling Happy from Kavanadu Police station”. He was with his friends Toni Francis and Bijo Ben.

Kollam city police commissioner S Satish Bino on Monday asked for an explanation from the station head.

An officer who spoke to TNM said that they don’t know when the photograph was taken, as there were very few officers at night in the station. They were released on Sunday morning after being booked.

“We have not given them the cap nor permission to take a selfie. We have no idea how it happened. They might have taken that when we didn’t notice,” the officer who sought anonymity said.
