Congress MLA's son attacks man at a pub in Bengaluru, FIR registered

With election just months away, opposition BJP and AAP were quick to corner the ruling Congress over the issue of Shantinagar Congress MLA NA Haris' son Mohammed Nalapad attacking and threatening a man. According to reports, the victim, identified as Vidwath was having dinner in the same pub with his friend. The story didn't end here.

He was immediately rushed to the city's Mallya Hospital for treatment.

"My friend Vidwath had broken his leg four weeks ago and I had made a decision to take him out for dinner".

"Mohammed Haris Nalapad, Gen Sec of B'luru city Youth Congress, has been expelled from Congress party for 6 years". He is the city district Youth Congress general secretary and executive director of Nalapad group of companies. It is said that they also manhandled and threatened Vidwat's brother Sathwik, who came to the hospital after learning about the incident, asking him not to file a police complaint.

The case came after the Privacy Commission watchdog filed a case against Facebook in June 2015. Facebook has been ordered to stop tracking people without consent, by a court in Belgium .

"We are looking for Nalapad and five other associates, who had gone to the café to beat up Vidvat".

Speaking to TNM, Congress MLA Haris claimed that even he is unaware of his son's whereabouts. "Vidvat had stretched his leg out because he couldn't move it and Nalapad had a problem with it". Whoever does wrong is wrong, be it son of a MLA or anyone else. "I will see that my son does not do anything like this again", said N A Haris.

While M Gowtham Kumar, BJP corporator from Jogupalya, was instrumental in getting the FIR registered against Nalpad and took the lead, the other BJP aspirant Vasudev Murthy has said the "Goonda Raj" of Haris continues unabated in the constituency. "The victim will be served justice", KPCC chief G Parameshwara tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Congress in damage control mode tried to disassociate Harris's son from the party and assured that law will take its own course.

In response to a tweet by historian Ramachandra Guha, the state chief minister Siddaramaiah tweeted: "Offenders should be punished to the full extent of law regardless of who they are".
