Nashik, Nov 4 (UNI) A local court today rejected Bharatiya Janshakti Party's (BJS) application seeking permission to allow Pragya Thakur, a key accused in September 29 Malegaon blast, to consent to file nomination for Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections on party's ticket.

The application was moved in the court of K D Boche, Chief Judicial magistrate, yesterday by BJP National Secretary Inder Prajapat demanding permission to meet Pragya and get her consent to file nomination for the election.

Though the court told the party to seek permission of the jail authorities to meet Pragya as she is serving judicial custody in Nashik Central Jail along with two others, it did not allow her to file nomination.

''We will file a revision application, most probably tomorrow, as the last date for filing nominations is November 7. If necessary, we will move the High court for this. We consider Pragya innocent from day one. Considering her will to contest elections, we want to give her party ticket,'' Mohan Narwaria, media in-charge of the BJP told UNI today.

Meanwhile, applications regarding Narco tests of Shivnarayan Kalsangre and Shyam Sahu, action against ATS officials and their inquiry about illegal detention were also heard today. The decision regarding the Narco tests will be given tomorrow whereas the other application is still pending.
