Bangalore: A court here on Wednesday issued a fresh non-bailable warrant against Kerala-based PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani, an accused in the 2008 serial bomb blasts that rocked the city, after police failed to produce him.

The court had earlier issued a warrant for production of Madani on Wednesday but he failed to appear before it.

Madani was among six persons named in an additional chargesheet filed by the Bangalore police on June 11, taking the total number of those charged in the blast case to 32.

He was charged on the basis of information provided by suspected Lashkar operative T Nazir, the prime accused in the case, who was arrested last December.

The serial bomb explosions that went off on July 25, 2008 in various parts of the city had claimed the life of a woman and left around 20 people injured.
