BANGALORE: PDP chairman and 2008 Bangalore serial blasts prime accused Abdul Nassar Madani was released from Bangalore Central Prison on Monday.

He was later taken to a private hospital in Whitefield, where he is likely to stay for a month under police security. His son and daughter reached the jail to receive him and later accompanied him to the hospital, the police said.

The Supreme Court had on July 11 granted one month bail to Madani while taking note that he was an undertrial, already in jail for the last four years and suffering from various ailments such as diabetes and vision-threatening ailment in both eyes.

Madani had sought bail so that he could be admitted to a hospital for treatment. He had contended that it would be difficult for him to go for a surgery, if he was in jail. While granting bail, the court had directed him not to leave Karnataka and had also stated that the state government could take measures to ensure that he does not get in touch with the witnesses in the case.
