In this paper, we explore the collider phenomenology of charged Higgs bosons in the context of a generic Beyond Standard Model scenario with extended gauge and scalar sectors. In such scenarios, the charged Higgs boson can decay via the channels. We formulate a search strategy for the in the channel considering the interesting cascade decay chain . We find that the charged Higgs can be discovered in final states with multiple hard leptons and/or b-quarks which future LHC experiments with sufficiently large luminosity ( and above) can probe. We then study the phenomenological implications of our findings in the context of a generic toy model with a as well as in a more realistic electroweak symmetry breaking scenario.
