In the May 6, 2012 incident, the trio were charged with voluntarily causing grevious hurt to Muhammad Farkhan Haron, 25, between 4.30am and 7am in Taman Molek here.
The trio were charged under Section 325 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt.
Deputy public prosecutor Dzul Iswari Mohd Jaafar prosecuted.
Foo, Tunku Nick Tazuddin and Mohd Arif were respectively represented by counsels Zamri Idros, Norman Fernandez and Mazri Muhammad.

Muhammad Farkhan was reportedly beaten up and locked inside a car's bonnet with bound feet and hands, for 45 minutes.
