via With Media Inputs published on January 3, 2012

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today rejected the bail plea of  Jihadi Terrorist Abdul Naseer Madani who is facing charges for his role in the 2008 serial terror blasts in Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Jaipur.

Madni’s counsel Sushil Kumar pleaded that the terrorist was suffering from serious spinal problems and associated symptoms and according to him Madni with a handicap was no threat to the law enforcing agencies. But the court retorted back “people need not do things physically. They can do wonders even while sitting at one place”.

Madni’s counsel also requested for treatment for Madni at Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala in Mallapuram district in Kerala. Court rejected his appeal, however directed Karnataka Government to provide treatment to Madni at Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala in Bangalore itself.

Senior counsel M N Krishnamani and standing Counsel Anita Shenoy, appearing for Karnataka, strongly opposed Madani’s bail plea and treatment in Kerala on the ground that he was involved in a number of cases and posed a threat to security.

Krishnamani maintained that the accused need not go all the way to Kerala for the Kottakkal ayurvedic treatment as the same was available in Bangalore itself and several other parts of the country. At this, the bench recorded Krishnamani’s statement and accordingly directed that the accused be given all necessary treatment within Bangalore Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala.

Earlier, Madani’s bail plea had been referred to Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia by a bench of justices Markandey Katju and Gyan Sudha Misra for constituting another bench in view of differences between them on the issue.

While Justice Katju had appeared to be in favour of granting bail to Madani, Justice Misra was strongly opposed to it in view of the serious allegations that impinged upon national security.
