A FIR has been registered against Bengaluru District Youth Congress General Secretary Mohammed Haris Nalapad and ten others for allegedly beating up a person in a restaurant in Bengaluru's UB City & threatening him at a hospital where he later went for treatment.
According to the FIR registered by the complainant Praveen Venkatachalaiah, he and his friend Vidvat (24) had been to Farzi Cafe on Saturday night for dinner, when the incident occurred.
The man has been identified as Vidwath, Dollars Colony resident. It is learnt that the victim along with his friends were having dinner at the high-end restaurant in UB City when Mohammad Nalapad and his friends walked in at 11:30pm.
