Bengaluru Central Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Chandragupta claimed on Tuesday that an FIR was filed against Bengaluru District Youth Congress General Secretary Mohammed Haris Nalapad, the son of MLA NA Haris.
This is the first time ever an FIR was filed against him in spite of the fact that Nalapad has been involved in many cases in the past without having a single FIR tied to his name.
On June 12, 2017, according to the reports, Nalapad allegedly attacked an individual over putting up banners during Rahul Gandhi’s Bengaluru visit. A complaint was filed but the JB Nagar Police did not register an FIR. On April 7, 2016, it is alleged that Nalapad, along with his henchman, attacked a security guard at the Bowring Club.
There was yet another case where his brother Umer was also involved and it took place in a pub on August 10, 2016.
All disorderly instances of Nalapad were told to the DCP.We have come to know about these incidents after the FIR was registered and definitely, whatever comes to our notice, we will not stay quiet.
The police have now managed to put all pieces together and have learnt better what happened at the restaurant in UB City.
The police claimed that all seven accused have confessed to the assault. However, they still need to interview the 24-year-old victim. Victim Vidvat is in the ICU and the police will soon collect more information from him to facilitate their investigation.
“We are now checking the background of the accused, how the incident took place and whether there were any motives,” the DCP said.
On Monday, Nalapad surrendered before the Cubbon Park Police, a good 37 hours after he along with the friends brutally assaulted a youth in the city.
In the evening, all the seven accused were produced before the 8th ACMM court on Nrupatunga road and were remanded to two days’ police custody.
This incident comes ahead of the high stake assembly elections set to take place in Karnataka this year.
