Sadhvi Pragya Singh's bail rejected by Mumbai court
Mumbai,June 28: The Special National Investigation Agency Court at Mumbai rejected the bail plea filed by Sadhvi Pragya Singh an accused in the Malegaon 2008 blasts case.
The order was passed by Sripad Tekale the special judge in the case.
The order was passed after hearing at length all parties including an application filed by the father of one of the victims in the blast. The victims father had filed an intervening application against granting of bail to Sadhvi Pragya Singh.
The NIA had however not opposed the bail plea. It had said that in its chargesheet that there was no proof to press charges against Sadhvi Pragya and hence it would not oppose the bail plea. It would however be the court which would finally decide if she can be discharged in the case or not.
Syed Nisar Ahmed a resident of Malegaon who lost his son Bilal in the blast had moved the court challenging the clean chit being given to her had also opposed her bail plea.
His advocate had argued that bail cannot be granted if the investigating agency is not opposing the same. He also argued that it was for the court to take a final call on the issue.
