New Delhi | The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on July 31 a plea by Kerala’s PDP leader Abdul Nazir Maudany, facing trial in the 2008 Bengaluru serial blasts case, for visiting his home state to attend his son’s wedding.

A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar directed that the matter be listed after advocate Haris Beeran sought an urgent hearing of the plea.

Maudany (51) has challenged the trial court’s order of July 24 declining him permission to attend his son’s wedding functions between August 8 and August 20.

The trial court had, however, allowed him to visit his ailing mother from August one to August seven, but had declined him the permission to attend his son’s wedding scheduled to be held on August nine.

In his plea, Maudany said that he was granted bail in July 2014 with condition that he would not leave Bengaluru without permission.
