Complaint says Vidwath hit with knuckle ring; not listed in FIR

Vidwath L, the victim in the pub brawl incident allegedly involving Congress MLA N A Hariss son Mohammed Nalapad, was beaten up with knuckle-duster rings that fractured his ribs.

Though the complaint filed by Praveen Ventakachalaiah, Vidwaths friend, mentioned the weapon, the police have not included it in the FIR.

“It is a weapon and attacking the victim using such a weapon amounts to attempt to murder. Since the accused hit Vidwath with knuckle-duster rings, his nine ribs (right 4th to 9th and left 4th to 9th ribs) got fractured, said Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) M S Shyamasundar.

Vidwath was brutally attacked by eight men, including Mohammed, at Farzi Cafe in Bengaluru on February 17.

The complaint states that Vidwath was “hit with bottles and rings”, but the FIR only states that the accused hit Vidwath with “bottles”.

“Vidwath collapsed soon after they punched him with rings. But it is not mentioned in the FIR. This raises suspicion over the police,” Praveen said.

Shyamasundar said, “In the spur of the moment, it can be said that the accused hit the victim with the bottle because there were bottles in front of him. But hitting the victim with knuckle-duster rings clearly suggests that they intended to kill him.” The SPP clarified that the court will only consider what is there in the complaint and not what the police have mentioned in the FIR.
