NRI businessman surrenders in Court

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: An NRI businessman involved in a case connected with a drunken brawl at the International airport here surrendered before the Chief Judicial Magistrate court on Tuesday.

Judge P Muraleedharan granted conditional bail to the NRI Madhil Reghu. The case was that Reghu along with one of his foreign friends Ahammad Muhammad Al Jalak had allegedly beat up the CISF security and immigration officials at the airport here on February 7.

The Court directed Reghu, hailing from Kollam district, to furnish a security of Rs Five lakh as condition for bail.

The local police had allowed them to go after registering a petty case. However, when the incident became a controversy and CISF complained about the manner in which the accused were treated by the local police, holding that the issue involved airport security, the government ordered a probe.

Later, the government suspended two police personnel including an assistant commissioner in connection with the incident.

Jalak surrendered before the police on February 11 and was on bail.
