MLA taken to Mysuru Jail amidst tight security to identify his assailant

Mysuru: Brutally assaulted in a wedding reception in the month of November last year, Narasimharaja MLA Tanveer Sait, who had gone abroad for treatment, arrived in city this morning to take part in the accused identification parade at Mysuru Central Jail. 

After the assault on the night of Nov. 17, the MLA was admitted to city’s Columbia Asia Hospital. He was discharged on Nov. 25 and he flew abroad for better medical facilities and privacy. 

According to the accused identification procedure, Sait should identify the accused to facilitate further investigation. Along with Sait, eight other eye witnesses and one complainant have also been summoned to identify the accused.

The MLA was brought to the Jail premises under tight Police security this morning. As the news of Sait coming to the Jail to identify his attacker spread last evening, hundreds of his followers and Congress activists had gathered outside the Jail to greet him and the Police had a tough time in controlling the crowd who were competing with each other to greet the MLA.

While Sait was led inside the Jail for the identification process, other eye witnesses were waiting outside for their turn. Sait, who came out of the Jail after one-and-a-half-hour long identification process, told the media that he has identified the accused and confirmed it to the Police.

Stating that it was a rebirth for him, Sait thanked the doctors, hospital staff, his followers and those who met him at the hospital during treatment.
