BENGALURU: The main suspect managing to dodge the police for over 24 hours has, meanwhile, raised doubts over the intention of police. It is alleged that the police, who arrested five of Mohammed’s associates by Sunday evening, did not take much interest in nabbing Nalapad.

On Monday morning, a police team went to the MLA’s house looking for his son. The MLA told them that his son will surrender before the police in a while.‘Trusting’ the MLA’s word, the police team returned. After an hour or so, Mohammed surrendered at Cubbon Park police station.

It is alleged that Nalapad was not treated like an ordinary accused and police did not act against Mohammed for ‘obvious’ reasons. Also, several theories were doing the rounds about the whereabouts of Nalapad.

On Monday evening, the officials of the CCB took over the case and visited the UB City mall, where the incident took place.

Supporters attack scribes

Supporters of MLA Harris’s son gathered at Cubbon Park police station around 1.30 pm shouting ‘Prince Nalapad’. Soon, they started attacking photographers and cameramen of TV channels for shooting Mohammed coming out of the station, when he was taken to Bowring Hospital for medical tests. Five of the men pulled cameras after dragging the cameramen in the station. Some of the scribes captured the attack on their mobile phones (see pic on right)and then fled. Policemen, however, were mute spectators and forced cameramen to leave. Some scribes complained to DCP Central Chandragupta, and an FIR was booked.

Doctors avoid surgery, opt for conservative treatment

Bengaluru : Doctors at Mallya Hospital feel a conservative approach, instead of surgery, is best for Vidvat who was beaten up by Mohammed Haris Nalapad and his cronies. Vidvat has suffered a nasal fracture that will take four weeks to naturally heal, doctors said. He also has soft tissue inflammation all over his face and a three-week old fracture in his right leg.
