Maudany writes to Prez, seeks speedy trial

Abdul Nasser Maudany

Abdul Nasser Maudany, arrested in connection with the 2008 Bangalore serial bomb blast and currently lodged at the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, has written to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking a speedy trial.

The Kerala-based People’s Democratic Party leader, in his letter, has alleged that he was a victim of a politically-influenced conspiracy. He has accused a section of the state administration and electronic media of branding him a terrorist and an anti-national.

“Since the officials failed to implicate me in the Coimbatore blast case in 1998 after they imprisoned me for nine years, out of sheer personal grudge, they tried to again implicate me in the 2008 Bangalore blast,” said Maudany in his letter.

On several occasions, he said, officials had met him within the confines of the prison, but none of the interrogators had raised the issue of the blast case or asked questions pertaining to it. He insisted that the officials themselves were convinced he had no role in the blasts.

Maudany also argued that of late he had been subjected to media trial regarding the bomb blast near the BJP office in Malleswaram last month. He complained of ‘improper’ medical care at the prison, saying his health was deteriorating as a result. A copy of the 26-page letter has been forwarded to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s office, several Union ministers as well as the Chief Justice of India.
