Bengaluru: The state government on Thursday again objected to the bail application of Abdul Nasser Madani, Kerala based PDP leader and one of the prime accused in the 2008 Bengaluru serial bomb blast case.
State public prosecutor, S. Dorairaju said that Madani’s plea seeking bail citing health grounds is false as he is seen reading newspapers and watching television on a daily basis inside the jail.
He also opposed the contention of the accused that he was suffering from an extreme diabetic condition due to which he was losing his eyesight and needed immediate special treatment.
“There are around 56 cases against Madani. He is trying to gain sympathy by citing false health grounds again and again before the court.
He is instrumental in disturbing peace and communal harmony in various parts of the country. He has challenged the entire nation by waging war and joining hands with terror outfits stationed abroad,” the prosecutor said.
He said jail doctors are capable of treating Madani. It took an SP, 8 DySPs and more than 1200 policemen to arrest him from Kerala, which showed how powerful he is, the state said in its objection. The bail plea is expected to come up for hearing shortly.
