HC relaxes bail condition of Soofiya Madani

Soofiya, wife of PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani, had sought relaxation of the condition stating that she wanted to look after her children and ailing husband. She also said during Ramzan she wanted to be with her family.

Opposing her plea, the National Investigation Agency (NIA), which is investigating the case, submitted that if the condition was relaxed, she was likely to tamper with evidence and influence witnesses. The investigation in the case was almost complete and chargsheet would be filed without further delay.

NIA Inspector, C Radhakrishana Pillai, stated that if the bail condition was relaxed, she would travel outside the district without any restriction.

Justice V Ramkumar relaxed the condition for a month. T Nazeer, accused in Bangalore blast and suspected Let militant, is among the accused in the case. The bus was burnt on Sept 9, 2005, in protest against Madani's imprisonment in Coimbatore central jail in connection with the Coimbatore blasts.
