- Kerala based PDP chairman, Abdul Nazir Muadany is accused in the 2008 serial bomb blast case.
- He has approached the Supreme Court of India seeking relaxation in the condition that the court has imposed on him in 2014 while granting bail as to not leave Bengaluru.
- The relaxation is sought so that Muadany is allowed to travel to Kerala which is his home town.
- Muadany has spent seven years in Bengaluru since 2014 since he was granted conditional bail on the ground that he was suffering from several ailments.
- It has been submitted in the application that it has been six years and the case is still proceeding very slowly. The undertaking which is the basis of the bail condition has lapsed and trial is yet not over.
- It was further highlighted that after the transfer of the officer, no officer has been appointed for the trial. Thus, the absence of any presiding officers implies that the trial is still going to take time.
- Apart from this, Muadany suffers from various health problems on account of which it has been contended that he is not able to take proper treatment. Since he is not allowed to move out of Bengaluru, he has been incapacitated to take any alternative treatment.
- His father’s partial paralysis and the fact that his father suffered a stroke, has also been made a ground to seek relaxation.
- It has been also highlighted in the application that Muadany’s bail conditions, has been relaxed by the court previously on three occasions and that there has been no complaints against him.
- It has also been contended that his presence is not required further at this stage of trial.
- The court’s decision is still awaited in the matter.
