He was alleged to be an accomplice of Abdul Nasser Madani
Noushad Thazhaith, 37, a native of Kozhikode, now a Non-Resident Indian doing business in Dubai, has moved the Madras High Court for quashing a criminal case registered against him by the CB-CID on charge of assisting People’s Democratic Party leader Abdul Nasser Maudany and his accomplices in planting a bomb on the Coimbatore Press Club premises in December 2002.
The petitioner claimed that he suffered 80% congenital loss of vision in both his eyes. Enunciating the prosecution’s case against him, he said the police had accused him of having accompanied Maudany’s wife to Coimbatore Central Prison on December 26, 2002 and picking a quarrel with the jailors for not allowing her to meet her husband.
“There is nothing on record to connect my name with the crime,” he said.
