The Karnataka High Court on Thursday dismissed the bail petition of PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani, one of the key accused in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts case.

Madani had filed the bail plea on health grounds. The high court had earlier reserved its verdict on the bail plea earlier this month.

In his bail plea, Madani had submitted that he was a chronic diabetic and wheelchair dependent. He said that he also suffers from cardiac problems, disc prolapse, cervical spondylosis and has been diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.

He claimed that he was not receiving proper medical treatment in judicial custody.

Madani was arrested in Kerala on August 17, 2010 and sent to judicial custody, has been lodged in Parappana Agrahara Jail since then.

He has been charged with treason, terrorism and attempt to murder.

The serial blasts prior to a poll meeting to be addressed by senior BJP leader LK Advani had left 58 people dead and over 200 others injured. (ANI)
