BENGALURU: With the arguments of the counsel for both parties having concluded, the High Court will dictate the order on the bail petition filed by Mohammed Haris Nalapad, son of Congress MLA N A Haris, in the case related to the alleged assault on Vidwat Loganathan  at a cafe in the city.

After hearing the arguments of senior counsel B V Acharya on behalf of Nalapad and Special Public Prosecutor M S Shyam Sundar, representing Vidwat, on Wednesday, Justice John Michael Cunha said the order will be read out on Thursday.

Nalapad and other accused are in judicial custody after they were arrested on February 17. This is the second time Nalapad has approached the High Court for bail after filing of chargesheet against him and the other accused. The trial court had rejected the bail plea twice and the High Court once.

Acharya argued that the chargesheet has already been filed and one of the co-accused has been released on bail by the High Court. The only allegation against Nalapad is that he slapped Vidwat, besides kicking him once. Moreover, the incident was not pre-planned. The court can impose conditions and release him on bail, he said.

Shyam Sundar argued that the CCTV camera footage from the cafe reflects the brutal attack on Vidwat by the accused.  Therefore, the court should not entertain the bail plea.
