Maudany seeks extension of bail

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nazir Maudany, accused in 2008 Bangalore serial blasts, has sought extension of his one-month interim bail for eye surgery and treatment to other ailments.

Maudany, 49, lodged in Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, since August 26 2010, was ordered to be released on July 11 by Supreme Court. 

He was told not to leave Bangalore and police were allowed to keep surveillance on him and his visitors.

Now, in an affidavit, he submitted that he has been admitted to Soukya International Holistic Health Centre, since July 14, date of his release, but his fluctuating blood sugar levels and many other complications required longer period of treatment.

“He requires treatment for long term especially in multi-speciality hospital, eye hospital to effectively manage the ailments from which he is suffering from and day-to-day attention and supervision will be necessary since all diseases suffered by the petitioner have been aggravated during his custody from 2010 for want of timely treatment,” the affidavit, filed by advocate Haris Beeran, said.

He said the police have been keeping a watch on his activities and even collecting name, phone numbers and addresses of all visitors.  

Police are taking photographs of visitors and that of vehicles in which visitors come to the hospital, he said, contending, the police did not allow him to participate even in Eid prayer on July 29 in any of the Masjids in Bangalore.
