Trial in Madhani’s cases should not be conducted together

NEW DELHI: The Karnataka Government Wednesday informed the Supreme Court that the trial in all cases of Abdul Nazar Madhani, accused in the Bangalore blast case, should not be conducted together. They informed the court that he put forward the demand to obtain reduction in the punishment. The Karnataka Government informed their stand when the court was considering Madhani’s plea seeking to hold the trial together.

The court is considering nine cases of Madhani.  A 60 % trial in all cases is over. Not only that, there is no provision to consider the cases together. If at all the cases are to be considered together, the trial court has to consider it. If the cases are considered together, it will lead to a delay in the trial. Madhani is now out on bail, said Karnataka.

A Supreme Court bench led by Justice J Chelameswar had asked the Karnataka Government last month why don’t they consolidate the trial together if the witnesses in the cases are the same.
