Kerala DGP rules out deliberate delay in Madani's arrest

PDP leader Madani arrested, taken to Bangalore

Ending the eight-day long suspense, PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani was today arrested amid high drama from his camp here by the Karnataka Police in connection with the 2008 Bangalore blast case 

Kochi: Kerala police today denied any "deliberate delay" in the arrest of PDP leader, Abdul Nasser Madani, an accused in the 2008 Bangalore blasts case.


"There was no deliberate delay in the arrest of Madani", DGP Jacob Punnose told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

"The Karnataka DGP had requested me personally that he wants the warrant to be executed by August 16 or Aug 17. It was done accordingly. We had only started the process sufficiently early so that it could be done without bloodshed'', he said.


After an eight-day long suspense, Madani was arrested on August 17 as he emerged from the orphanage-cum-madrassa complex at Anwarassery in Kollam to surrender before a local court.

He was arrested by a Karnataka police team amid high drama hours before the non-bailable arrest warrant issued by a Bangalore court was to expire.


On the progress in the case relating to the attack on college Lecturer T J Joseph, he said the police had identified the accused.

"There would be more arrests. This is not a normal case. There has been a conspiracy and the accused were aware of the eventuality of the crime," he said.


Joseph was attacked on July 4, allegedly by activists belonging to the Popular Front of India, and his right hand chopped off for preparing a question paper which reportedly contained "derogatory" references to Prophet Muhammed.
