Kochi: Kerala High Court on Tuesday directed the police to striclty ensure that two wheeler riders wore helmets and observed that the statements made by Ministers and other public persons against the implementation of the provision should be ignored.

The direction was issued by a division Bench comprising Justice C N Ramachandran Nair and B P Ray while considering contempt petition filed by George John seeking direction to DGP to give instructions to subordinate officers to comply with High Court Judgement making it mandatory for two wheeler riders to wear helmets.

The bench said the petitioner can bring to the notice of insurance companies for making provision to exclude liability of insurer for payment of compensation to two-wheeler riders for not wearing helmets. The court reminded the police that support of ministers cannot not be a defence in contempt proceedings.
