New Delhi, June 6: Today at the special court, one of the victims of the Malegaon blasts filed an intervening application. The decision to file this application was taken after the National Investigation Agency decided to give Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur a clean chit in the case.
Wahab Khan, the advocate sought from the court permission to become an intervenor in the case. Khan felt that the victims should be heard by the court before a decision to discharge Sadhvi Pragya is taken by the court.
Hence he said he wanted to be an intervenor in the case. The court sought replies from both the NIA as as well as Sadhvi on this application.
Earlier Sadhvi Pragya Singh filed an application before the court seeking bail. The NIA which had decided to give her a clean chit in the case for want of evidence did not object to the bail plea. It said that it would leave it to the Court to take a final call on the matter.
The NIA had taken a call not to oppose the bail plea of Sadhvi Pragya (Sadhvi Pragya's bail plea- NIA will not oppose)
An NIA official informed OneIndia that there were no charges against her and hence we had suggested to the court that she be discharged.
The Malegaon blasts in 2008 had claimed several lives. The Maharashtra ATS which probed the case first had arrested Pragya and several others in connection with the case. Later on the probe was handed over to the NIA. The NIA in a chargesheet filed recently had dropped charges against her.
