Hindu activist Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who got a clean chit from the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the 2008 Malegaon blasts case, will be taken to Simhastha early morning on Wednesday, her brother-in-law Bhagwan Jha told Hindustan Times.

Bhopal central jail authorities informed Jha that she will be ready by 3:30 am and will get police protection and an ambulance will accompany her.

Pragya started an indefinite hunger strike on Monday demanding that 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.
