she confronted her husband and asked who the woman was.
An Indian man landed in trouble with Kerala’s Motor Vehicle Department and his wife after road safety cameras seemingly exposed him.
He was spotted travelling on his motor scooter in Thiruvananthapuram without a helmet, which is a traffic violation.
However, the unnamed man was also spotted travelling with a woman, prompting his wife to suspect that he was having an affair.
On April 25, 2023, the man breached the traffic rule when AI cameras caught him travelling with the woman.
Because his wife was the owner of the vehicle, details of the traffic violation were sent to her via a text message.
Details included the rule broken, an image of the motor scooter and the fine that needed to be paid.
When the woman received the message, she confronted her husband and asked who the woman was.
The 32-year-old man claimed that he had no relationship with the woman and stated that she was just a friend to whom he was giving a lift.
However, his wife did not believe him and suspected that he was cheating on her.
This resulted in an argument between the married couple.
On May 5, 2023, she filed a complaint at Karamana Police Station, claiming that her husband had manhandled her and their three-year-old child.
Although no evidence has been found as of yet, a case was lodged based on the statement.
The man was subsequently arrested.
A police officer said: “He was taken into custody based on her statement. An arrest was recorded under IPC 321 (voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (wrongful restraint) and 294 (obscene acts) and Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act (assault or neglect of child).”
The officer went on to say that the man was produced before a court. He was later remanded in judicial custody.
Despite being caught on camera with another woman, it is not known whether she was actually his lover.
Meanwhile, the state of Kerala has been witnessing an intense political row over the installation of cameras on state roads as part of the road safety project ‘Safe Kerala’.
The opposition Congress party claimed there were irregularities in the implementation of the AI camera system.
The CPI(M) rejected all allegations, calling them “baseless”.
State Secretary, MV Govindan said the allegations were made in order to divert attention away from the achievements of the Left government.
