A police station in Kozikode had a surprise visitor in an eight-year old boy. The boy came with a complaint against his sister and her four friends. Their fault: They did not play with him. The boy wanted the police to arrest the five girls below 10 years of age.
“They are making fun of me because I am a boy. They are not allowing me to play ludo, shuttle (badminton), Police and Thief game with them”, the boy named Umar Nidar told the police on Monday.
The boy approached the police after his father jokingly asked him to lodge a police complaint against his sister and her friends.
Civil Police officers U P Umesh and K T Niraz of Kasba Police station visited his house and resolved the “issue” with an advise to the girls to take him along. Again, all as a matter of kind gesture.
The complaint, written by the third standard student in English, was handed over to the two police officials when they had visited the boy’s neighbourhood to inquire into another complaint on May10.
“I have a complaint”, Nidar had said as he handed over his plaint to Umesh and Niraz.
As it was already late evening then, the policemen assured the boy they would visit his house the next morning, Niraz said.
And come, they did, to resolve the complaint of this 8-year-old boy.
After listening to his woes, police called the other children and advised them to include Nidar also while playing, Niraz said.
