A day after his release on conditional bail from the Bangalore Central Prison, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader and an accused in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts case, Abdul Nasser Maudany, was subjected to a series of medical tests at Soukhya International Holistic Centre here on Tuesday.

Medical Director of the centre Issac Mathai said that Mr. Maudany was suffering from at least 18 medical conditions.

“Based on the outcome of the tests, we will chalk out the course of treatment. We will also have to take a second opinion from an eye specialist,” he said.

Dr. Mathai said some of his parameters, especially renal functions and vision loss, looked worse than last year.

He said that while one eye had no vision, the other had 10 per cent. “Doctors had recommended eye surgery last year, but fluctuation in blood sugar levels came in the way. We will look at possibilities of conducting a surgery this time,” he said.

Dr. Mathai said that as Mr. Maudany was fasting this Ramadan, it was challenging to monitor his blood sugar levels.

According to family sources, although there is no restriction on visitors, they are trying to avoid them as he needs complete rest.

His family members, including daughter, son-in-law and two sons, are by his side, sources said. They alleged that lack of proper treatment in prison had worsened his vision. Though the prison authorities claimed to be providing treatment, he was denied it, they alleged.

Police security

Meanwhile, over two dozen police officials have been deployed outside the centre round the clock.

They are keeping a watch on the movements of Mr. Maudany and his visitors, a senior police officer said.
