Mohammed Nalapad gets bail after 116 days
Mohammed Nalapad Harris was granted conditional bail by the Karnataka High Court in connection with Vidvat assault case on Thursday. Justice John Michael Cunha, who heard the matter for nearly two hours on Wednesday, delivered the order.
According to reports, Nalapad cannot leave the city and he would furnish a bail bond of Rs 2,00,000. Mohammed Nalapad is out on bail after spending 116 days in Parappana Agrahara jail. The 63rd Sessions Court had denied bail to Mohammed Nalapad Harris, former general secretary of the Bengaluru city Youth Congress and son of Congress MLA NA Harris. Mohammed Nalapad had been rejected bail for the third time.
Nalapad was arrested after he and friends brutally assaulted 24-year-old Vidvat in an uptown Farzi café in the city on February 17. On February 21, Nalapad filed for bail. In his application, he said that invoking IPC section 307 (attempt to murder) was a wrong step by the prosecution. Special public prosecutor Shyam Sundar, who is representing Vidvat, dismissed the pleas by pointing out that Vidvat was injured by the brutal assault by Nalapad and his associates who punched and kicked him.
