Kochi: Soofiya Madani, wife of PDP leader
Abdul Nasser Madani and 10th accused in the 2005 Tamil Nadu
bus burning case, was shifted from Alappuzha Medical College
Hospital to a private hospital here on Thursday night.

Soofiya, who was under treatment for various health
problems in the medical college hospital, was brought to
Lakeshore Hospital at around 9 pm, hospital sources said.

She was granted conditional bail by Ernakulam Sessions
Court yesterday. The court had directed her not to leave
Ernakulam district and appear before investigating officials
as and when required.

She was arrested on December 17 after the Kerala High
Court dismissed her anticipatory bail application in
connection with the case. Later she was remanded to 14 days
judicial custody and was lodged at the Ernakulam sub-jail.

However, on her complaints of ill health, Soofiya was
shifted to the medical college hospital on December 20.

She was named as the tenth accused in the case by Kerala
police after the interrogation of suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba
militant T Nazir, who was picked up by the Bangladesh Rifles
on the border along with an associate and handed over to
Indian security agencies.
