The High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail petitions filed by two accused in the April 17 Malleswaram bomb blast case.

Justice N Anand rejected the bail petitions filed by Peer Mohideen and Saddam Hussain. They had allegedly used an improvised explosive device (IED) and it had left 11 policemen  and five civilians injured near the BJP office at Malleswaram.

The state public prosecutor submitted that the accused, if given bail, may threaten the witnesses and destroy the evidence. He also contended that the investigation is still in progress. This is a serious case where the accused are involved in communal violence. It is a very sensitive issue and is relatesd to national security, he contended. The Malleswaram police had arrested Mohideen in Tirunelveli. Saddam Hussain was lodged in a Salem jail.

Release Agent from Detention: HC 

The High Court on Tuesday directed the Home Department to release fertiliser export agent Pandyan Muruganathan who is in detention from November 2010 for his alleged involvement in exporting fertiliser brought into the country by the government for sale at concessional rates to farmers.

The court gave this ruling over Muruganathan’s wife Bidisha’s petition alleging that the police had illegally detained him and were not able to prove the charges against him. She sought a direction from the court to release him from ‘illegal detention’. Justice N Anand directed the Home Department to release him and disposed of the petition.
