New Delhi,(DHNS): The State government, has told the Supreme Court that it has paid Rs 16.08 lakh towards payments for medical treatment of Kerala’s Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nazir Maudany, jailed for his alleged role in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts.
In an affidavit, it denied the charge it had chosen not to pay the medical bills despite apex court’s order and annexed the details of money disbursed to different hospitals.
It further claimed that he declined to go for routine check-up as directed by Manipal Hospital on July 4.
In a fresh bid last month, Maudany sought bail, claiming that he required “holistic” medical treatment for the stabilisation of his deteriorating health and to prevent him turning blind. The 49-year-old amputee, suffering from severe diabetes and other ailments, submitted that he had to undergo urgent eye surgery.
Meanwhile, the apex court bench of Justices J Chelameswar and A K Sikri adjourned the hearing on his bail plea to Friday.
Maudany has been in central prison, Bangalore in the case since August, 26 2010, after spending more than nine years behind the bars in the case relating to Coimbatore blasts in which he was acquitted later.
A series of blasts in Bangalore in 2008 had claimed lives of two persons and left 20 others injured.
