E-curfew pass received by CM Krishnan Namboothiri in which his name is marked as 'chief minister'

Pattambi (Palakkad): Due to the negligence of someone who is in charge of allotting travel pass to the public, a common man has been made the 'chief minister' for a few hours. Even the applicant was shocked to see his status changing in the blink of an eye.

Koottanad native CM Krishnan Namboothiri applied for e-curfew pass for consulting doctor at a private hospital in Pattambi. But when he received the pass, his initials 'CM' was changed to 'chief minister'. Also the place name Koottanad was wrongly given 'Kottanad Video' in the pass.

After the photo of this pass was widely circulated in the social media, Krishnan Nabmoothiri started receiving many phone calls. The e-curfew pass allowed permission to travel on May 15 from 10 am to 2 pm.

Meanwhile, the police control room authorities said that they are unaware of how this mistake was included in the pass. They also said that the details given by the applicants are recorded on the pass without any changes.
