Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday ordered issue of notice to the state government on the bail petition filed by Kerala PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani, one of the accused in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts.

When the petition came for hearing before Justice N Ananda, he directed the government advocate to take notice of the petition on behalf of the government and granted one week's time to file their objections on the matter.

In his bail petition filed two days ago, Madani had sought his release on the ground that there is no prima-facie evidence against him to implicate him in the blasts.

A team of Bangalore Police had arrested Madani from his orphanage-cum-madrasa Anwarssery in Kerala on August 17. On December 3, a local court had committed the case for trial.

Madani is among 31 people named in the charge sheet in the case relating to the July 2008 blasts that killed a woman and left and 20 others injured.
