New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to the Maharashtra government on a petition filed by Pragya Singh Thakur, prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon bomb
blasts case, seeking bail.

A bench comprising Justices JM Panchal and Gyan Sudha Misra sought the reply from Maharashtra`s anti-terrorist squad (ATS) which had arrested Thakur and later booked her under the stringent MCOCA.

Advocate Mahesh Jethmalani, appearing for Thakur, alleged that Thakur was kept in 14 days "illegal" custody before she was produced in a trial court on October 23, 2008.
