Sadhvi Pragya Singh gets bail in Malegaon blasts case
The Bombay High Court has granted bail to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur in the Malegaon blasts case. The bail order comes a few weeks after the National Investigation Agency had given her a clean chit. Sadhvi Pragya has been directed to furnish a bail bond of Rs 5 lakh and surety of the like sum. She has also been directed to surrender her passport to the NIA and appear on the trial dates.
It may be recalled that a special court in Mumbai had questioned the NIA for dropping charges against her. The court had said that it is difficult to accept her bail plea merely on the ground that the NIA has given her a clean chit. Following this she moved the Bombay High Court where she got relief.
It may be recalled that the NIA had also given her a clean chit in the Ajmer Dargah blasts case. The closure report submitted in the NIA court said that there was not enough evidence to proceed against them in order to build a case.
