Maudany, 31st accused in the 2008 Bengaluru serial blasts, is presently in a private Ayurveda hospital in Bengaluru for ‘panchkarma’ treatment, since June 7. His consul Adv P Usman and a relative were denied permission to visit him in the hospital by the ARP which argued that visit would be permitted only on the order of the Jail IG and court. However, Adv Usman reportedly said that Maudany can be visited twice a week by his consul and relatives according to the law, as he is still an under-trial. The permission was finally given reportedly after talks with Armed Reserve DCP MD Naidu.

Maudany was arrested by the Bengaluru police from Kerala on August 17, 2010, when he was on his way to surrender in court. After 10 days of police custody, he was remanded to judicial custody and transferred to the Parappana Agrahara Central Prison in Bengaluru. The judicial custody has been extended ever since and Maudany’s bail pleas were rejected by courts. A bail plea submitted at the Supreme Court is under consideration and will be heard on August 3.
