Hindu activist Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who got a clean chit from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the 2008 Malegaon blasts case, took a holy dip in Kshipra river during the ongoing Kumbh Mela in Ujjain on Thursday .
Pragya took the holy dip at Ram ghat amid tight security, her aide Bhagwan Jha told PTI.

Pragya on Wednesday called off the indefinite hunger strike which she started demanding she be allowed to take a dip in the Kshipra river, in Ujjain, during Simhasth Kumbh.

The Bhopal police had been denying her the visit, citing security issues, despite a court in Dewas allowing her demand on May 5.

On Tuesday, doctors at Bhopal’s Pandit Khushilal Ayurvedic Hospital, had warned that her blood pressure and heartbeat rate were not normal. She has been receiving treatment at the hospital for various ailments including cancer.
