A 2014-batch IPS officer, Karim was on probation, serving as the Assistant Superintendent of Police in Nanguneri sub-division, a taluk headquarters in Tirunelveli district.

Earlier, he founded a coaching center for the civil services exam, called Karim’s La Excellence, with branches in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Calicut, Bhopal, and Hyderabad. The coaching center’s advertisements say Karim is an IPS topper (112th rank in 2014).

Comparing the civil services exam with a video game, Karim, in an interview to a leading Malayalam daily in 2015, was quoted as saying that it was actor Suresh Gopi, now a BJP member of the Rajya Sabha, who inspired him to become an IPS officer. Gopi is known for his heroic police officer roles in Malayalam films. Karim later also met Gopi.

Karim was well-known among IAS aspirants in Kerala, as he organized orientation programmes for them across the state. “He used to take leave and go for training sessions,” said a senior officer.

An advertisement put out by his coaching center last year talks about a 15-day residential programme for a batch of 20 students. “Optional Sociology for Mains 2016 by Safeer Karim, IPS (Sociology topper, 112th Rank, 2014),” it says.

“All your teachers under one roof. Kerala’s No. 1 IAS coaching center founded by Safeer Karim, IPS,” says another advertisement.

Official sources said Karim may face disciplinary action, including dismissal from service, as he was still on probation.
