Congress youth leader Mohammed Nalapad allegedly thrashes man


The Congress on Sunday expelled youth leader and MLA NA Haris' son, Mohammed Haris Nalapad, for six years after reports emerged that he assaulted a person in a pub.

The late night "assault" by Shanthinagar MLA N A Haris's son Mohammad Nalpad on a private individual has left the ruling Congress party red faced and trying to ward off the political repercussion of the situation ahead of the impending state assembly elections of 2018. Nalapad allegedly called in a gang of 10 members and assaulted the man at a cafe in Bengaluru's UB City mall on Saturday.

Mohammed was elected Youth Congress general secretary in May, 2017.

According to Praveen, Nalapad was not convinced and had a heated exchange with Vidwath. "We are looking for Nalapad and the other accused", said an officer of Cubbon Park police station who asked not to be named.

According to the BJP, the Haris incident has given the party a much needed platform in Bengaluru to target the sitting MLA and in turn the Congress misrule.
