Poonthura Siraj, working chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, has called upon the State government to get Abdul Nasir Maudany, party chairman, shifted to a prison in Kerala from the Central Jail in Bangalore, where he has been lodged in connection with the July 2008 Bangalore blasts case.

At a press conference here on Thursday, he said Maudany had to be admitted to hospital urgently, but the Karnataka government was ignoring his deteriorating health.
