KOCHI: Karnataka Home Minister K J George on Sunday said that there was no violation of human rights in the case of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nasser Madhani, the main accused in  the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts case.

The minister, who was in Kochi on a personal visit, was speaking to reporters.

“The Government of Karnataka did not do anything wrong, but followed the court  directives. Anyone can  examine this”, he said. On Madhani’s bail, George said it was the Supreme Court that has to take a decision on cancelling the bail granted to Madhani. The prosecution has made its submission at the court.

On being asked about Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy’s visit to the Soukhya Hospital to see Madhani, K J George said he was not aware of the visit.

“I do not know what the  Kerala Chief Minister and Madhani discussed. It is better to ask the CM himself to know the details of his visit,” George said. 

Madhani, one of the 31 persons charge-sheeted in the 2009 Bangalore serial blasts case, was arrested in Kerala in 2010.

Madhani has been in jail since then. The Government of Karnataka had opposed to releasing Madani on bail.
