Bangalore blast: Madani denied bail

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of Abdul Naseer Madani, arrested for his alleged role in the 2008 serial terror blasts in Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.

The Bench, however, directed the Karnataka government to provide medical treatment to Madani, founder of People's Democratic Party in Kerala, at the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala in Bangalore for his health problems. The SC passed the directions while declining to entertain senior counsel Sushil Kumar's plea for interim bail to him to enable him to undergo treatment.

Kumar pleaded that Madani be given bail as he was falsely implicated and cited his acquittal in the Coimbatore bomb blast case after nine-and-a-half years of incarceration as proof.

Senior counsel M N Krishnamani and standing counsel Anita Shenoy for Karnataka strongly opposed Madani's bail plea.
