In his complaint, A K Mohammed Haneef said that he had boarded a bus at Sullia at 9.30 pm on October 3, to travel to Bengaluru. As only the three seats were vacant, he took a seat next to a woman. When the bus reached Kallugundi, about 20 persons, including Sudha, an auto driver, and Dinu, who works at a hotel, stopped the bus and entered.

It was only when they asked the girl who was sitting next to him that they realised that Haneef did not have any relationship with the girl and they left the bus. When the bus reached Madikeri, Haneef alighted from the bus to attend nature’s call, when another group of 20 to 25 persons attempted to assault him.

What is the need f the assault ? You people are just creating a scene in public. People have to come up with their thoughts and not react unnecessarily
