Mumbai: Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, prime accused in the September 2008 Malegaon blast case, has moved the Bombay High Court seeking a direction to authorities that she be taken to Bhopal either by plane or in an air-conditioned compartment of train.

Sadhvi has to appear before a court in Bhopal for a hearing in the trial related to murder of RSS activist Sunil Joshi.

The special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Court here had last week rejected her plea.

Sadhvi's lawyer, advocate Ganesh Sovani said she was ready to bear the expenses of the journey.

"No prejudice or any loss would be caused to any of the respondents if Sadhvi is allowed to travel by first class or second class AC in train or by air from Mumbai to Bhopal at her own expense," her plea states.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing this week.
