The Thrissur-based businessman who filmed his nine-year-old son driving his Ferrari, was arrested today and immediately granted bail on a surety of Rs 5000. The Ferrari has been returned to businessman Mohammed Nisham on the condition that he will submit certain documents to the police and court. He was booked under Juvenile Justice Act for endangering the life of his son and others. Defending himself, Mr Nisham said "'he had no idea the issue would snowball like that."
The Nishams also said they allowed their son to drive the car because it was his ninth birthday and he had been insisting on it for months.
They said he had driven several other cars owned by them, including a Lamborghini and Bentley.
