Thakur was at Kamla Nehru police station here and officials were holding a discussion with her, a senior police official said.

Thakur, MP from Bhopal, kicked up a controversy with a remark about Godse, Mahatma Gandhi's assassin, in the Lok Sabha on November 27. Later she apologised.

Congress MLA from Biaora in Madhya Pradesh, Govardhan Dangi, had lashed out at Thakur for her statement about Godse, and said that "we not only burnt her effigy (during a protest), but if she comes here, we will burn her too".

Dangi, too, later sought apology for his outburst. "Right now we are holding talks with Pragya-ji," said Additional Superintendent of Police Sanjay Sahu when asked if a case was being registered as per her demand.
