Bengaluru pub brawl: Congress MLA Haris' son surrenders

Mohammad Nalapad

Nalapad was sacked from his position of Bengaluru Congress Youth President and also lost his primary membership for six years.

Karnataka Congress legislator NA Haris's son Mohammed Haris Nalapad has gotten into a bit of trouble for assaulting a man in a pub and then later on visiting the hospital to warn him. This did not prevent the BJP from calling the incident an example of "lawlessness" in the state under Congress.

The administration sprang into action after the police was accused of initially refusing to file a case because Nalapad, apart from being an MLA's son, has been general secretary of the city Congress unit.

The victim was at one of the posh restaurants in UB City when Nalapad entered with his aides at around 11:30 pm, PTI reported.

After a heated exchange of words, Nalapad and his friends allegedly attacked the victim. The former deputy chief minister visited the victim at Mallya Hospital, where he is undergoing treatment.

Vijay Hadagali is close to MLA Haris and was suspended two years ago when he was police inspector of Vivek Nagar for not registering an FIR against Haris' associates for assaulting two policemen in front of police quarters. According to Vidvat's friends who were with him at the café, Mohammed and his gang followed and assaulted them with bottles when they were trying to take Vidvat to Mallya Hospital after the brawl. Mohammed Nalapad had earlier been accused of flying into violent fit of rage on multiple occassions but had reportedly managed to evade police and legal action till now. He said a Bharatiya Janata Party MP's son was also seen in the footage but was not named an accused. "Congress MLA must counsel his absconding son to surrender", state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa tweeted.

Speaking on this incident, Congress MLA NA Haris said, "Whoever does wrong is wrong, be it the son of an MLA or anyone else". I contacted him after that and asked him to not skirt the law and surrender to the police.

On Sunday, Haris claimed he was unaware of his son's whereabouts. "One can not cover up something wrong so I have asked my son to surrender", NA Harris told TNM.
