Sadhvi Pragya Singh, a key accused in the 2008 Malegoan blast case, would be produced before a court in Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday in connection with the murder of RSS activist Sunil Joshi.

Joshi, a suspect in the Samjhauta Express blast case, was shot dead at Devas in Madhya Pradesh on December 29, 2007.

Special public prosecutor Rohini Salian confirmed the development and said Madhya Pradesh police on Tuesday produced a warrant issued by a local court in Devas.

As per the warrant, the Devas court has directed the Madhya Pradesh police to produce Sadhvi, Salian said.

"The special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court here has directed jail authorities to make arrangements for her travelling to Devas either by train or by flight but not by road," Sadhvi's lawyer Rameshwar Gite said on Tuesday.

Gite further said that the court also directed the JJ hospital authorities to discharge her.

Though Sadhvi was arrested in February in the Joshi murder case, police had not sought for her physical custody.

Maharashtra Anti-Terrorist Squad had arrested 12 people, including Thakur, Lt Col Srikant Prasad Purohit, and Sudhakar Udayban Dwivedi alias Dayanand Pandey alias Swami Amritanand, in connection with the 2008 Malegoan blasts in which seven persons were killed and over 70 injured.

Sadhvi was arrested in connection with the Malegoan blast case on October 23, 2008.
