Case filed against father of nine-year-old who drove Ferrari
Thrissur:  A case has been registered against the father of a nine-year-old boy in Kerala who was seen driving a Ferrari in a YouTube video. Nisham, a bidi firm owner, has been booked under Section 23 of the Juvenile Justice Act for allowing his underage son to drive a car and the possible threat involved.

Filmed by his parents and posted online by the boy's father, the video had gone viral, creating a huge furore, with several criticizing the act as a case of "irresponsible parenting". But the Thrissur-based Nishams were unperturbed, with the boy's mother telling NDTV that she was "proud" of her "talented" son's "achievement" at this age.

"It was his ninth birthday, and since he was insisting for months, we allowed him to drive the Ferrari. He is a cautious and confident driver. I am proud of him," Amal Nisham, the boy's mother, had told NDTV.

She, in fact, defended the action, saying that her son had driven the Ferrari on a "private road" in their residential colony and added that she ensured that no child was around at the time. But contrary to her claims, the video shows some children following the car. A young boy can also be seen sitting next to the nine-year-old.

The boy's parents had said he had driven several other cars owned by them including a Lamborghini and Bentley.
