The Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court on Tuesday sought to know from JJ Hospital if 2008 Malegaon blasts accused, sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, could travel to Devas in Madhya Pradesh in connection with a murder case.
Acting on Thakur’s application saying she is not fit enough to travel to Madhya Pradesh, special MCOCA judge, YD Shinde, directed the superintendent of JJ Hospital, where Thakur is presently recuperating, to submit a report on or before March 7. The court wants to know if she is in a condition to travel from Mumbai to Dewas, and by what mode of travel.
Thakur had filed the application to travel to Devas, following a production warrant from a Devas court in connection with the murder of Sunil Joshi, a right-wing activist.
Joshi, a suspect in the blasts at Ajmer-e-sharif, Mecca Masjid and Samjhauta Express train, was allegedly shot dead at Devas on December 29, 2007.
Sadvi’s counsel, Rameshwar Gite, said a Judicial Magistrate First Class court at Devas, had issued a warrant for producing Sadhvi before March 9.
“We filed the application since Thakur is not physically fit to travel to Devas,” Gite added.
