A court in Bangalore remanded People's Democratic Party leader Abdul Nasir Maudany to judicial custody till September 7
The First Additional City Metropolitan Magistrate here on Thursday remanded People's Democratic Party leader Abdul Nasir Maudany to judicial custody till September 7. He will be lodged in the Bangalore Central Prison.
Mr. Maudany, who is accused No. 31 in the 2008 serial blasts here, complained before the magistrate that he did not receive proper medical treatment for his ailments.
“On the day of arrest [August 17], my blood sugar level was 500. The police took me to a hospital [Victoria Hospital], where I was attended to by a junior doctor, who did not address my problem,” he said.
Mr. Maudany also told the court that a Thiruvananthapuram hospital found that there was a prolapse of the lumbar region (lower back) and recommended an MRI scan. “But the circumstances prevented me from undergoing a scan,” he said.
Mr. Maudany asked the court to permit him to be treated by a cardiologist and an orthopaedic surgeon. His advocate, P. Usman, said Mr. Maudany should be provided with facilities such as a wheel-chair and a mattress and allowed to use a commode.
Magistrate Venkatesh R. Hulagi directed the prison authorities to get Mr. Maudany treated by experts at the Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology.
The magistrate said Mr. Maudany should also be seen by an orthopaedic surgeon. The Jayadeva Institute has been asked to submit a report on September 7.
Bail application filed
Meanwhile, Mr. Maudany has filed an application seeking bail. It will come up for hearing on Friday before the Fifth Fast Track Sessions Court. This court earlier rejected Mr. Maudany's anticipatory bail application.
