Kozhikode (Kerala), Feb 27 (IANS) People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chairman Abdul Nasir Maudany, acquitted last year of the charge of masterminding the 1998 Coimbtore blasts, was admitted to a private hospital here Wednesday after he complained of chest pain. “He is now under observation in the intensive care unit. His condition is stable,” said a hospital official.

He was brought to the hospital from Manjeri in Malappuram district where he went to attend a public function organised by the PDP.

Maudany, founder of the PDP, was freed from Coimbatore prison last August, after he was acquitted in the Coimbatore blast case. His imprisonment without trial for nine years had created controversy here.

The serial blasts Feb 14, 1998, just ahead of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani’s poll rally, left 60 people dead and around 250 injured.
