Mumbai, Nov 3 (UNI) Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur and two others, suspected of plotting and planting a bomb at Malegaon on September 29, will be produced before a local court in Nashik as their police remand is ending today.
After conducting a medical examination of the Sadhvi and her associates, Shamlal Bhavar Sahu and Shivnarayan Singh, in the municipal King Edward Memorial hospital in the morning, the trio was taken to Nashik by Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS).
