FORMER Hounslow mayor Darshan Grewal has been accused of ignoring police warnings in the period prior to a serious assault at his wife's restaurant.
The Labour councillor is named in a police report about the Karahi Palace, which is opposite Hounslow West Tube station, that was put before the licensing panel at Hounslow Borough Council's this week following a number of incidents.
Officers called for a review of the licence, held jointly by Brian Gardner and Mr Grewal's wife Gurpreet, after a glassing assault which left a customer with a fractured skull.
The incident, on February 26, came two weeks after Mr Grewal was given a police warning following a disturbance outside the Karahi Palace.
In a statement prepared for the licensing review - which was due to take place on Wednesday night but has now been postponed until April 12 - police licensing officer Lindsay Cornock said: "Police attended the premises on Friday, February 12 and spoke to Mr Darshan Grewal.
"He and his staff were advised to ensure that a function at the premises that night was closely monitored. This was ignored."
