Malegaon blast case: Court rejects Sadhvi Pragya\'s plea seeking permanent exemption from appearing in court

MUMBAI: Special NIA court in Mumbai on Thursday rejected BJP MP Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur's application seeking permanent exemption from attending the court once a week. In her application, Sadhvi Pragya had sought exemption from court appearance on the ground that she is an MP and needs to attend the parliament on a daily basis. The Special NIA Court, however, granted Sadhvi Pragya an exemption for today from attending the court in connection with the 2008 Malegaon blast case.

Pragya also stated in her application that she does not have any residence in Mumbai or near Mumbai and since she moves around in a security cover it becomes inconvenient to her to make security arrangement while in Mumbai. The Special NIA Court also took note of the remarks that Sadhvi Pragya had made in her last appearance about dust in court room and said that she has deliberately not taken the note of the construction work going on court premises.

Apart from Sadhvi Pragya, Lieutenant Colonel Prasad Purohit, Major (retired) Ramesh Upadhyay, Ajay Rahirkar, Sudhakar Dwivedi, Sudhakar Chaturvedi and Sameer Kulkarni are other accused in the case. They are all out on bail.
