Jailed Madani allowed to attend daughter's marriage

A court here Thursday allowed Kerala's People's Democratic Party leader Abdul Nasser Madani, in jail here facing trial in the 2008 Bangalore serial blast case, to attend his daughter's marriage in his 


Kollam (Kerala): Abdul Nasser Madani, leader of the People's Democratic Party, under custody of Karnataka police for allegedly conspiring the 2008 Bangalore bomb blasts, was here in connection with his daughter's "nikah" or marriage Sunday, and many people turned up to catch a glimpse of their leader.

Madani, leader of a local political outfit and also a religious leader here, has been under police custody in the neighbouring state since August 2010, and was granted parole till March 13 to attend his daughter's wedding here.

Thiruvananthapuram airport was buzz with activity Saturday as hundreds of his supporters waited for his arrival since morning. When he finally landed late in the night, local police had a tough time controlling the crowd of supporters.

A smiling Madani waved to supporters on emerging from the arrival terminal.

A five-member Karnataka police team, seeing the large crowd waiting to greet him, quickly escorted him back into the airport's arrival terminal.

As the emotions in the crowd subsided, Madani was taken to a waiting van and driven to a private medical college near here, where he was treated prior to his arrest by the Karnataka police.

At the private medical college also, supporters showed up in strength and police were hard-pressed to control the crowd.

Medical college authorities have been instructed by the police not to divulge results of medical tests conducted on Madani.

After attending his daughter's nikah Sunday, Madani will return to the hospital.

Madani is set to visit his home in Anwarassery, also located in this district, to spend a little time with his old and ailing father. He will fly back to Bangalore Tuesday, and return to jail.

A Kerala police team led by Additional Director General of Police A. Hemachandran is looking after Madani's security. Scores of policemen in uniform and plainclothes have been deployed at all places Madani will visit in the state.

Kerala Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan has already said that Madani's bail conditions would not be breached. He has been instructed not to interact with media people or make public statements. Only close relatives are allowed to meet him.
