Dewas (MP): Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur was
on Monday presented before a court here in an ambulance parked
inside the premises, in the Sunil Joshi murder case, as she
was unable to step out due to spine problems.

Sadhvi, who reached here today by Mumbai-Indore Awantika
Express was unable to climb to the first floor of the court
building, where Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Onkarnath
Singh sits because of pain in her backbone and inability to
stand properly.

She has been referred to the M Y hospital in Indore and
doctors there would decide on when she will be fit for further
travelling. Earlier, she was taken to the Mahatma Gandhi
District Hospital here soon after her arrival this morning for
a check-up.

On an application filed by the Sadhvi`s counsel, the
court directed that two female attendants would stay with her
round-the-clock.

Sadhvi, a key accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, was brought here by Maharashtra police amidst tight security
for hearing in the murder case.

RSS activist Sunil Joshi, a suspect in the Samjhauta
Express blast case, was shot dead at Dewas in Madhya Pradesh
on December 29, 2007. Sadhvi was earlier questioned by the
Dewas police in connection with the murder in February
following which her name was added as an accused in the case.

She has not been handed over formally to the Madhya
Pradesh police.
