KOCHI: Abdunnaser Madani, chairman of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), arrested in connection with the 2008 Bangalore serial bomb blasts, is passing through a critical health condition and any negligence in providing urgent treatment may pose danger to his life, according to wife Sufiya Madani.
“Abdunnaser Madani’s health condition has worsened in recent weeks and he needs urgent treatment. He is suffering from multiple ailments and the treatments given so far were either not enough or failed to achieve desired results.
“He fainted during treatment at Soukhya Hospital on Jan. 18. Tests in Manipal Hospital revealed that he needed immediate expert treatment to save his life. Sight of right eye is completely lost and left eye has only limited vision. Rupture of veins in the eyes led to clotting of blood.
“No treatment is given for kidney ailment. Procedural bottlenecks often prevented effective treatment. Both state and central governments should intervene in the matter,” Sufiya told media persons at a press conference here on Friday.
She also sought the help of human rights organisations in this regard.
Sufiya also said she would approach the court with a petition seeking bail for Madani to attend their daughter’s marriage.
“We would approach Bangalore trial court on Monday to seek bail so that he could attend our daughter’s wedding on March 10.”
She expressed confidence that the court would allow the petition. “The nikah is scheduled for March 10 at Kollam and as father, Madani’s presence is needed to conduct the rituals,” she said.
Madani’s sons Omar Mukhtar and Salahuddin Ayyoobi were also present. Madani, 48, who was arrested in August 2010, has so far undergone treatment for several ailments.
In January, Madani was treated at the Soukya International Holistic Centre, in Bangalore following the directions of the Karnataka High Court, which had rejected his bail in November but permitted him to be treated in a hospital of his choice under police escort.
After his release, Madani was shifted back to the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison.
Madani is among 31 persons chargesheeted in the case relating to the July 2008 bomb blasts in Bangalore that killed one person and left 20 others injured.
Andhra police were likely to question Madani in connection with the recent twin blasts in Hyderabad.
