The Bangalore police will pursue deportation of two Iranian women booked for offences,including assaulting a policeman,if they were found guilty.

Additional Commissioner of Police (law and order) M R Pujar said a report of the incident had been sent to the Iranian embassy but no official had contacted the police as yet.

“Attacking policemen on duty is a serious offence. It is a non-bailable offence and entails two-three years in prison,” said Inspector at the Commercial Street Station S Badrinath.

“For Muslim women,to be drinking is a grave offence. This would have had more serious consequences if it was in Iran,” said another officer.
