NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to grant bail to Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) leader Abdul Nasser Madhani, who is an accused in the Coimbatore, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Jaipur serial bomb blasts in 2008.
However, a Bench comprising Justice P Sathasivam and Justice J Chelameswar directed the Karnataka Government to provide ayurvedic treatment to him at the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala unit in Bangalore.
Senior advocate Sushil Kumar, appearing for Madhani, sought interim bail for the accused to undergo treatment at the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala in Malappuram district. Madhani’s counsel stated that he should be released on bail as he was falsely implicated. He said that the accused, who had to undergo amputation of one of his legs, was suffering from serious spinal problems and associated symptoms. Kumar added that the PDP leader would not be a threat to the law enforcing agencies since his health condition is not sound.
To this, the Bench, in a lighter vein remarked: “We would like to say people need not do things physically. They can do wonders even while sitting at one place.”
Senior counsel M N Krishnamani and standing counsel for Karnataka Anita Shenoy strongly opposed the bail plea of Madhani saying that the treatment is very much available in Bangalore.
