HC dismisses bail petition by Madani

Dismissing the petition, Justice V Jagannathan observed that the material and statements of witnesses indicated that Madani was in constant touch with the other accused in the blasts.

The court refused to accept that there was no prima facie case against Madani and pointed out to the calls made between Madani and others accused in the case.

It further said national security was far more important than individual liberty and though there was no direct evidence implicating Madani, it was the job of the prosecution to establish that fact.

Following the application which sought bail for Madani on health grounds, the court directed the authorities to provide him medical assistance.

The court held that inference could be drawn from whatever evidence had been collected that it was sufficient proof of the conspiracy.
