Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur along with two other accused, who were arrested by Maharashtra ATS in connection with the September 29 Malegaon blasts and remanded to ATS custody till November 3, will be produced again in a Nashik court on Monday.
ATS has so far arrested five persons, including retired major Ramesh Shivji Upadhyay and Abhinav Bharat office bearer Sameer Kulkarni, in connection with the blasts, which killed five persons.
The custody of three accused -- Prgya Singh Thakur, Shivnarayan Singh Kalsangram and Shyam Bhawarlal Sahu is ending tomorrow and they are likely to be produced in Nashik court tomorrow, while custody of two others -- Upadhyay and Kulkarni-- will end on Nov 10, court sources said.
Meanwhile, Diwakar Kulkarni, Secretary of Bhonsala Military School (BMS) while talking to reporters yesterday said that a meeting of Abhinav Bharat activists was held at BMS on September 16 for which the BMS had provided place.
"Our leading 70-year-old educational institute had no connection with said meeting," he said adding that the name of BMS is unnecessarily being implicated into the case.
ATS has detained the retired army officer along with BMS commandant Shailesh Raikar and clerk Rajan Gaidhani yesterday but our institute will stand firmly behind them, he added.
The Nashik court had allowed ATS to carry out scientific tests of brain-mapping, narco and polygraphy tests of both Upadhyay and Kulkarni. Earlier, the court had also granted similar tests of Pragya Singh.
