Deliberate delay alleged

The State Home Ministry is not extending support to the Karnataka police in arresting PDP chief Abdul Nasir Maudany, BJP State president V. Muralidharan has said. The arrest is being deliberately delayed, he told reporters here on Wednesday.

A pact seemed to be in place between the Home Department and Mr. Maudany in this regard. He said religion should be kept out of the trial of Mr. Maudany, an accused in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts case. “Mr. Maudany should not communalise the case. This is an issue of security and not of religion,” he added.
