In February, Karnataka Congress lawmaker NA Haris' son was arrested for beating up a man at a restaurant in an upscale mall in Bengaluru. Mohammad Haris, then the general secretary of the Youth Congress in Bengaluru district, allegedly thrashed the man who had placed his bandaged leg on a table at the restaurant in UB City. Mr Haris later surrendered; he was expelled from the party for six years. Following the incident, his lawmaker-father put out a public apology.
