Madani says family will co-operate with terror probe

india Updated: Dec 14, 2009 21:54 IST

With his wife Soofiya Madani being listed as an accused in the Tamil Nadu bus burning case, PDP leader Abdul Nasser Madani on Monday said the couple would fully co-operate with the investigation.

However, Madani said he would not be responsible for any consequences, if his wife was arrested and taken to the neighbouring state.

Madani told reporters that he feared if his wife also would have to undergo the suffering he had when lodged in Coimbatore central jail in connection with the Coimbatore serial blast cases.

Denying any link with suspected LeT operative, T Nazir, now in police custody, he said instead of focusing on him and his wife in the 2005 bus burning case, the nexus between the LeT and Kerala has to be exposed.

Madani alleged that some congressmen in the state have conspired to trap his family in the case.

"I have full faith in the judiciary and I am sure that my wife will come out clean," he added.

Soofiya was listed as 10th accused in the case relating to the torching of a Tamil Nadu Corporation bus at Kalamassery in Kochi in September 2005 to protest against Madani's detention in the Coimbatore jail.

The development followed the arrest of Nazir, who was the prime accused in the case.
