Indian man arrested for letting 9-year-old son drive his Ferrari

Kids are growing up faster and faster these days, especially when their parents encourage them to do so. Take Mohammed Nisham for example, who was arrested by Indian police this month and charged with endangering the life of a child and allowing a minor to drive. 

The arrest was sparked by a video of his 9-year-old son driving the family Ferrari F430 on public roads with his 7-year-old brother riding shotgun.  When the footage went viral and caused an outrage in India police intervened.  Nisham’s wife doesn’t seem to understand what all the concern is about.    


“I am proud of him. He's been driving since he was five,” said Amal Nisham, the boy's mother who filmed the video.

“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,” she told television channel NDTV.

The boy’s father owns a lucrative tobacco and real estate business and has a fleet of 18 cars worth an estimated $4million, said Inspector MV Verghese.  Of the lot, Mrs. Nisham said their son has also driven a Lamborghini, Bentley and others.

“It's not easy for a child to achieve such a feat at this young age,” she said..
