Another plea by Sadhvi to travel 1st class

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blasts case have moved the Bombay High Court challenging the order of the special court which rejected her application seeking to travel either first class or by air to face the investigation at Bhopal in connection with the Sunil Joshi murder case.
In her petition filed before the High Court she says that she filed an application on 16.01.2012, before the Special MCOC Court, seeking a directive permitting her to travel from the Byculla jail to Bhopal on 02.02.2012. She says. She also said she was ready to incur the cost of both rail and / or air fare if there is any technical or procedural hitch in the same, since her safety and security was her paramount
However, the said application was rejected by the on the ground that the Jail Manual does not provide so. The NIA had taken over the investigation of the Sunil Joshi Murder and that case had been transfered to a court in Bhopal.
The Sadhvi further submits that she is ready to bear the expenses by herself for the travel. She quotes the doctors advise and says that she can travel comfortably only if she travels by either road, first class AC or by air, otherwise.
