CCB grills minister's son over Nalapad case

CCB sleuths on Wednesday recorded the statement of R V Yuvaraj, BBMP corporator and the son of Chickpet MLA, R V Devaraj, over the pub brawl case involving Mohammed Haris Nalapad.

The CCB during the course of the investigation found that Yuvaraj was present in Farze Cafe, UB City, on February 17 when Nalapad and his associates reportedly assaulted Vidwath L, a fellow diner.

Yuvaraj, however, denied being present in the pub during the incident and said he went there only half an hour later after learning about it. He said when he went to the pub, there was no one around and he returned. He also clarified that he was nowhere connected to the case.

On Tuesday, CCB sleuths summoned PWD Minister H C Mahadevappa's son Sunil Kumar Bose in connection with the case. The CCTV footage showed he was one of those present in the pub during the incident. The footage shows him overseeing the assault from close to the table where the incident happened.

Bose, however, told the sleuths that he was quite far away from the spot of the incident and that he just remembered it as an argument between two groups.
