A confessional video of a young medical professional, who was arrested on charges of possessing narcotic drugs, has become public through social media platforms. Thrissur city police has ordered a probe into the incident, in connection with the arrest of an MBBS graduate on Tuesday.

Thrissur city police commissioner R Adithya said, “We have launched an internal inquiry into the leakage of the confessional video. We have to find out who has taken the video and shared it on social media. However, I don’t think the issue involves any violation of the rights of an alleged accused or a person in police custody,’’ said the commissioner.

The house surgeon at government medical college in Thrissur was nabbed from his hostel premises on Tuesday early morning. Police seized 2.75 grams of MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, a psychoactive drug) and an empty bottle, which allegedly used to stock hashish oil from his room. He was arrested when 15 days were left for completion of the house surgency (internship after the MBBS).
