Coimbatore: A court here on Thursday dismissed the bail petition of suspected extremist Hyder Ali in a case related to a murder attempt on a Hindu outfit leader in 1989.
Principal Sub-Judge T Chandrasekaran rejected Ali`s plea after the prosecution argued that the accused might jump bail again as he had done earlier.
Ali was granted bail in the case 21 years ago, but had jumped the bail. He was allegedly involved in the RSS office blast in Chennai in 1993 which had left 11 persons dead.
Since 1993, Ali was at large and was nabbed from Palakkad in Kerala on June 2 last and lodged in the Central jail here.
He was granted bail in the Chennai blast case by the Special Court here last week, but could not be released in view of the pending murder attempt case.
The defence counsel has argued that Ali was a kidney patient and had to undergo treatment urgently.
