Close on the heels of the bail being granted to 2006 Malegaon blast Accused, Sadhwi Pragya Singh Thakur has moved the court seeking regular bail.
Earlier she had moved even the Supreme Court seeking bail but the same was rejected by a Bench comprising Justice J.M. Panchal and Justice H.L. Gokhale on September 9 this year.
The grounds being put up by the Sadhwi this time while she seeks bail are:
No ‘specific role’ has been attributed to her, No incriminating thing has been recovered from her.
From 10.10.2008 to 22.10.2008 she was interrogated by the ATS only on the point of her (once owned) LML Freedom two wheeler, which is reflected in the Station Diaries maintained by the ATS Police Station at Kalachowki.
It only after recording the two Section 164 Cr.P.C confessional statements of two witnesses Bairagi and Nahar recorded on 22.10.2008 before Addl. M.M. at
Girgaum, Moghe, she came to be arrested that is the ‘reasoning’ of her arrest according to ATS itself, which was reflected earlier in the affidavit filed by the then Chief IO Mohan Kulkarni in response to Sadhwi’s ‘bail by default’ pleas filed in HC & SC.
However, on 26.11.2008, these two accused had lodged a private complaint against the then ATS Chief Hemant karkare & others before Ld. JMFC at Indore in which they have narrated the manner in which they were assaulted, beaten up, threatened and intimidated by the ATS Officers even at Indore i.e. on the soil of the MP and also at ATS Kalachowki and forced them to confess before Addl. M.M. at Girgaum.
She has also sought a parity since three other accused (Sahu, Kalsangrah & Rahirkar) of 2008 blast have been granted bail by HC.
This case would now be heard on December 5th after the NIA would file its reply, her advocate Ganesh Sovani informed.
