Will Sadhvi Pragya be allowed to visit Kumbh Mela?


Bengaluru, May 17: It would take sometime before Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur walks out of jail. Sadhvi who was discharged by the National Investigation Agency in connection with the Malegaon 2008 blasts case is currently on a hunger strike.

She says that she wants to visit the Kumbh Mela in Ujjain and also take a holy dip in the river Shipra before May 21.

She is currently undergoing treatment in a hospital. The police on duty have told her that there is not enough personnel to accompany her to the mela.

Citing security reasons, they have not permitted her to visit the mela. However, Sadhvi has claimed that she has permission from a court in Dewas and moreover there should be no bar as the NIA has suggested that she be discharged from the case.

More time before freedom:

Sadhvi has threatened to end her life if she is not granted permission. She is refusing to eat or drink water. While she does have a court order which grants her permission to visit the mela, the police will have to make arrangements for her security.

On the other hand, in legal terms her discharge formality from the Malegaon case is not complete as yet. While the NIA has suggested that charges be dropped against her, it is the court which will have to take a final call on the matter, legal experts point out.

The case could also run into troubled waters for her if any person decides to challenge the decision of the NIA.
