Bengaluru: The Karnataka government has not taken any steps even after the last week’s Supreme Court verdict directing them to shift People's Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nasser Ma’dani to a private hospital for treatment of his multiple ailments.
“We will move the trial court tomorrow in this regard,” Ma’dani’s counsel told reporters here on Monday.
The Supreme Court November 18 directed the Karnataka government to shift Ma’dani to a private Bangalore hospital for treatment.
Observing that the improvement in the health of Ma'dani was of "prime importance", the court said: "We are of the view that the petitioner be treated at the hospital of his choice."
Having allowed Ma'dani to be treated at Manipal Hospital, the court said that his close relatives will be allowed to visit him in hospital.
Ma'dani was named in as an accused in the second supplementary charge-sheet filed by the police and was arrested in Kerala on August 17, 2010. He has been lodged in Parappana Agrahara jail since then. He is among a total of 31 persons chargesheeted in the July 2008 Bangalore blasts that killed a woman and left 20 others injured.
