Bhopal: The main accused of 2008 Malegaon blast case Sadhvi Pragya Singh will continue to remain in Bhopal Central Jail in connection with the murder of the RSS worker Sunil Joshi.

She was produced in the court of Additional District Judge V K Pandey along with the other accused in the case Ramcharan Patel, Harshad Solanki, Vasudev Parmar and Anandraj Kataria. No lawyer from the National Investigation Agency (NIA)appeared in the court.

Pragya moved an application in the court seeking permission to stay in Bhopal jail, as she wanted to get herself treated in the Ayurvedic Sansthan here. She also sought the copy in which charges had been levelled against her.

The court accepted her two demands and also ordered for the appointment of Bhagwan Jha and Kalpana Singh as nurse for her treatment.

It needs to be mentioned that Sunil Joshi was an RSS worker who was murdered on December 29, 2007 in Devas. Last year, Madhya Pradesh revealed that Joshi was murdered by a Hindu fundamentalist. Joshi was the mastermind of the Ajmer Dargah and Hyderabad’s Mecca Masjid Blasts. The investigation of the case was later handed over to NIA.
