Maudany approaches SC for bail

Abdul Nasser Maudany, incarcerated for his alleged role in the Bangalore serial blasts of 2008, has approached the Supreme Court seeking bail on the ground of ill-health and undue delay in the conclusion of the trial.

Founder of People’s Democratic Party in Kerala, Maudany challenged the Karnataka High Court’s order of August 27 denying him bail in the case.

In his special leave petition, the petitioner submitted that he had been in jail since August 2010, but the trial had not proceeded much.

He claimed that not a single witness – of the 70 examined – had so far blamed him for the serial blasts. He said the trial in the case was being adjourned for “some flimsy reason or the other.”

He said he was afflicted with multiple ailments requiring constant medical attention and timely treatment.

Two people were killed and 20 injured in the Bangalore serial blasts.
