Mr Nitin Kapoor, husband of Ms Jayasudha, actor and Secunderabad MLA, Mr Kumar, a film producer, was allegedly assaulted by young men who were racing on the roads late on Saturday night near the Hitec City flyover at Jubilee Hills. Mr Kapoor alleged that they were inebriated at that time.
The Madhapur police on Sunday arrested three persons for the attack, Avinash Goel, Aditya Goel and Sashank Goel of Banjara Hills. They belong to a family that owns a confectionary export business.
The police registered a case under section 341 IPC (obstructing), 506 (criminal intimidation for abusing) and 323 IPC (causing minor hurt). Mr Srinath Reddy, inspector of Madhapur police, said Mr Kumar had lodged a complaint at 3.30 pm on Sunday. They were not inebriated when they were picked up, he said.
“We don’t know whether they were drunk in the night or not,” he said.
All the three accused of assaulting Mr Kapoor are aged between 25 to 28 years.
