A RESTAURANT in Hounslow West has had its opening hours slashed after a customer's skull was fractured in a fight.
Karahi Palace, in Cavendish Parade, opposite Hounslow West Tube station, was also hit with a number of other regulations, at a meeting of the licensing committee on Tuesday night.
Gurpreet Grewal, wife of former Hounslow mayor Darshan Grewal, has been replaced as the 'designated premises supervisor' and she and fellow licence-holder, Brian Gardner, have been ordered to employ a bouncer whenever there is entertainment on a Friday or Saturday night.
The troubled eatery's closing time has been reduced from 3am throughout the week to 1am and Mrs Grewal and Mr Gardner must install a working CCTV system and record any incidents in a written log book.
The measures follow a licensing review requested by police, who raised a number of concerns about the venue's management in a report prepared for Tuesday's meeting.
The Chronicle revealed last month how licensing officer Lindsay Cornock had criticised Mr Grewal for ignoring police requests in the run-up to the assault on February 26.
Although Mr Grewal is not a licence-holder, PC Cornock said he was listed as the 'premises user' in a 'fire safety order' issued last month due to concerns over the restaurant's safety measures.
Mr Grewal told the Chronicle the changes had already been made and there had been no problems at the restaurant in the two months since the assault.
Mrs Grewal and Mr Gardner both declined to comment.
