‘Blows came so fast I couldn’t say a word’

Blows came so fast that he could not even utter a word. But Vidwath Ls reticence only provoked Mohammed Haris Nalapad and his friends as they punched him and kept smashing liquor bottles on his face, abdomen and chest. They wanted him to say sorry but would not let him open his mouth.

Nalapad was the first to attack him before his friends joined in.

“A group of 15-20 people attacked me suddenly. They kept beating me, asking me to say sorry. But I was just not able to say sorry. My nose was fractured and even now, I am unable to speak or open my eyes,” Vidwath said.

He is in the ICU of Mallya Hospital where his condition has only worsened. His face, mouth and eyes are swollen, and he struggled to talk.

Nalapad and his friends had brutally assaulted Vidwath following a verbal altercation at Farzi Cafe in the upscale UB City on Saturday night.

The incident has snowballed into a political controversy since Nalapads father
N A Haris is the Congress legislator from Shanthinagar.

Recalling the incident, Vidwaths friend Kiran Kumar said the dinner was almost over and he had gone to the car park.

He waited at the entrance, but when his friends didnt come out for long, he returned to the hotel and was stunned to see Vidwath lying on the ground and a group of 15 beating him black and blue.

“They were all well-built men and I could not rescue him. No one else dared go near as they were beating him brutally,” Kumar told this newspaper.
