B'luru: NA Harris's son surrenders after being booked for thrashing man

Vidwath who was beaten up by Nalapad and his friends

The BJP leaders condemned the attack and accused the Congress of trying to protect Mohammed Haris. Nalapad had earlier today surrendered before the police. He is expected to be produced before a city court after completing police proceedings later in the day.

However, although he was absconding, he reportedly went to the police station from his residence.

Harris Nalapad apparently was having dinner at a restaurant in the high scaled UB City mall where an injured man, named Vidwath, had placed his bandaged foot on the table of the restaurant.

The victim, Vidvat, is now recovering at Mallya Hospital in the city.

At the time of his surrender, there was a minor tussle between protesting BJP, JD (S) cadres and Congress supporters. The swift action by the Congress is seen as an effort to control damage to the party ahead of the Assembly polls.

The police have registered an FIR against Nalapad under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint), 506 (criminal intimidation), 143 and 144 (unlawful assembly), 146 and 147 (rioting), 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by unsafe weapons) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace).

I am appalled at & strongly condemn the ghastly attack by MLA N.A. Harris's son on innocent Vidwat. Family members of Vidvat had alleged on Sunday that the cops at Cubbon Park were adopting a callous approach to the incident and also accused them of not invoking attempt to murder charges against Mohammed Nalapad.

Nalapad, son of Karnataka Congress MLA NA Haris, was on Sunday expelled as the Bengaluru District Youth Congress General Secretary after it was reported that he allegedly beating up a person in a restaurant in Bengaluru.

The MLA described the incident as unfortunate.

The government had also initiated disciplinary proceedings against Cubbon Park inspector Vijay Hadagali and Assistant Commissioner of Police Manjunath on Sunday before transferring the case to Central Crime Branch.

"Yesterday my son spoke to his mother over the phone". Whoever does wrong is wrong, be it a son of an MLA or anyone else.

On the opposition's allegation of "hushing up the case", Mr. Haris claimed that he was unaware of his son's whereabouts.
