The Supreme Court today granted one-month bail to Abdul Nazir Madani, the prime accused in 2008 Bangalore serial bomb blast case, on health ground. A bench of justices J Chelameswar and A K Sikri granted the relief as the accused is suffering from various ailments but directed him not to leave Bangalore.

The court said the Karnataka government is at liberty to take all steps to ensure that he does not get in touch with witnesses in the case, including putting him under surveillance.

Maudany has been behind bars for the last four years and is suffering diabetes and vision-threatening ailment in both eyes. The apex court had earlier denied the bail plea of Maudany and had directed the Karnataka government to provide medical treatment to him.
