Complete Maudany's trial in four months: SC

The Supreme Court on Friday set a four-month deadline for a Bengaluru court to complete the ongoing trial in the 2008 Bengaluru serial blasts case involving Kerala’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nasser Maudany.

A bench of Justices J Chelameswar and S A Bobde extended the bail to the ailing accused by four months.

The court reiterated that Maudany would not leave Bengaluru and would not meet any witnesses during the period as per the conditions set earlier while granting him bail on July 11.

Maudany, 49, faces charges in the 2008 Bengaluru serial blasts case.

He was released on bail as he claimed that his condition deteriorated due to diabetes during the incarceration. He also claimed to be on the verge of losing his eyesight.

Advocate Prashant Bhushan, who appeared for Maudany, sought further extension of the bail.

Senior advocate Raju Ramachandran, representing Karnataka, submitted that the trial was likely to be completed within three months.
