Maudany's bail petition rejected

The High Court on Thursday rejected the bail petition of Abdul Nasser Maudany, president of People’s Democratic Party, who is an accused in the M Chinnaswamy stadium bomb blast case.

Maudany had sought bail on health grounds, alleging that the State Government has failed to provide him better medical treatment. Justice Nagmohan Das, while rejecting the bail plea, permitted him to obtain treatment for his ailments at his own expenses in any hospital of his choice.

Refuting Maudany’s allegations, the State Government said it was concerned about his health and has spent nearly Rs nine lakh for his treatment, in accordance with the directions issued by the Supreme Court in this regard.

Maudany had stated that he was suffering from various ailments and he needed three months to get the treatment completed. State Public Prosecutor Chandramouli submitted that Maudany was free to avail treatment in any hospital in the State at his own cost but under police protection. Chandramouli said that Maudany underwent Panchakarma treatment at Soukya hospital as per the directions of Supreme Court and was admitted there for 28 days. Justice Das accepted the submission of the State and rejected the bail application.

Maudany was taken into custody and brought to Bangalore from an orphanage-cum madrasa in Anwarssery in Kerala on August 17 last year. He has been lodged in Bangalore Central jail.
