Kochi: PDP leader Abdul Nasser Ma’dany, who was arrested by Karnataka police in 2010 in connection with the 2008 Bangalore blast case, Monday arrived here after the Supreme Court last week allowed him to visit his ailing mother in Kerala and stay there for five days.
"Small rays of justice are now in sight...," he told reporters briefly outside Cochin International Airport referring to the apex court's decision granting him permission to visit his mother.
Ma’dany, accompanied by his wife Sufia, younger son Salahudheen Ayoobi, PDP leaders and aides, left for Anwarssery in Kollam by road.
Poonthura Siraj, a senior PDP leader and a close relative of Ma’dany, told IANS that Ma’dany will first visit his parents and at night will arrive at his headquarters, which is also near his parents' home. He will return to Bengaluru on Friday from Thiruvananthapuram.
He was arrested on August 17, 2010, in connection with the conspiracy for the Bangalore bomb blast.
He was granted bail on July 11, 2014, which was extended by two weeks August 11, 2014 and it was further extended by four months on November 14 last year, as the court had given Karnataka four months time to conclude the trial.
While granting bail to him on July 11 last year, the apex court had asked him not to leave the city and to furnish the details of his stay during the bail period.
In 2013, the court had allowed Ma’dany to attend his daughter's marriage.
