Raising concern over delay in trial of Abdul Naser Madani in the 2008 Bangalore blasts case and jail authorities denying proper medical facilities to the leader who is reportedly unwell, Alliance for Protection of Human Rights & Justice and other groups will convene a conference here on Saturday.

“We want justice for innocent people. The state is biased against minorities and Dalits, and many organizations have brought to public notice wrongful arrests. We will discuss this issue at the conference,” member of the People’s Democratic Front, Nagari Ramesh, said.

Accusing jail authorities of not providing Madani with proper health facilities, APHRJ’s Rizvan Bappanad said the PDP leader was in urgent need of expert medical attention. Madani was denied bail through filing of false documents in court, he alleged. Bappanad accused a prison doctor of misleading court by certifying Madani was in  ‘sound health’.
