Dewas (MP): Malegaon bomb blast accused
Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, currently lodged in a Mumbai jail,
is likely to be produced before a local court on March 30 in
connection with the murder of RSS pracharak Sunil Joshi.

The summons in this regard were issued by Judicial
Magistrate First Class (JMFC) Padmesh Shah Tuesday evening.

Pragya, an accused in the murder case, was earlier
supposed to be present in the court on March 9 and then on
March 21 but she was not granted permission by the Mumbai
courts because of other cases pending against her.

Vasudev Parmar and Anand Raj Kataria, other accused in
the case, were present in the court.

Joshi, a suspect in the Samjhauta Express bomb blast,
was shot dead in Dewas in December 2007.

Pragya, an alleged member of right-wing Hindu group
Abhinav Bharat, was arrested in 2008 for the blast at
Malegaon, Nashik district, in the same year.

Six people were killed and many others wounded in the
explosion in the communally sensitive town.
