Sunil Joshi Murder: Pragya Taken to Madhya Pradesh
Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, arrested in connection with the murder of Samjhauta Express blast suspect Sunil Joshi, was taken to Dewas in Madhya Pradesh today following an order from a local court there, police said.

Thakur, who is also a key accused in 2008 Malegaon blast case in Maharashtra, would be produced before a court in Dewas in connection with the murder of Joshi tomorrow, they said.

"The Maharashtra Police are taking her to Dewas by Awantika Express that left Mumbai Central railway station this evening. Pragya would alight the train at Indore from where she would be taken to Dewas court by road," a police source told PTI.

Pragya's lawyer advocate Ganesh Sovani said that she had written a letter to the city police commissioner that she be allowed to travel by AC First Class compartment owing to her poor health.

She even offered to pay for the tickets but the police booked her in the second class compartment, he said.

The MP police had moved an application in the special MCOCA court here in February, and after taking the court's permission had placed Sadhvi under arrest in the Sunil Joshi murder case while she was undergoing treatment at the J J hospital.

Subsequently, the MP police had produced a warrant issued by a local court in Dewas directing them to produce Sadhvi.

Joshi, a suspect in the Samjhauta Express blast case, was shot dead in Dewas in Madhya Pradesh on December 29,2007.

Sovani said, "Pragya was brought to the Mumbai Central railway station at the 11th hour when the train had almost started moving and the police had to ask passengers inside the train to pull the chain to stop the train."
