Kerala constitues doctors' panel to study Madani's health
The Kerala Government has constituted an expert committee to look into a detailed health report, provided by the Karnataka government on People's Democratic Party (PDP) leader Abdul Nasser Madani. Madani is lodged in a Bangalore prison in connection with the 2008 serial blasts that left two dead and 20 injured.
Briefing newspersons here following a meeting of the state Cabinet, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said follow up procedures would be discussed only after getting the detailed report of the five member committee of doctors.
Referring to the demand of various political parties for government intervention for providing health care to Madani, Mr Chandy said though his government had limitations, it would do whatever it can within those limitations.
Replying to a question, he said sending an all party delegation to Karnataka to take up the issue of Madani's treatment was not under the consideration of his government.
The Karnataka High Court recently rejected the bail plea of Madani, who is among the 31 people charge sheeted in the case.
But the court permitted him to avail treatment in hospital of his choice under police escort.
