Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Apr 26 (ANI): Despite being granted bail after nine long years, Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the prime accused in the 2008 Malegaon Blast case did not express satisfaction but asserted that injustice has been done with her. Pragya told ANI that she should have been acquitted after getting cleanchit, but instead has only been granted bail. "Injustice has been done with me. There is an entire history of injustice that has been done with me. I always maintained that I am honest and that was proved. I am a Sadhvi and I have always maintained calm," she added. Sadhvi Pragya further said that he has undergone a lot of pain in the last nine years and is still unwell. "Today, when I have been granted bail, I am not celebrating it," she said. The Bombay High Court yesterday granted bail to Sadhvi Pragya in connection with the 2008 Malegaon blast case. Thakur, who will have to furnish a bail amount of Rs five lakh besides two sureties of the same amount, has also been directed to submit its passport to the National Investigative Agency (NIA) court and appear on the dates in the trial court. The NIA had informed the court that it had no objection to the court granting bail to Thakur. "Five lakh rupees surety has been ordered by the court and she has been asked to deposit her passport with the NIA Court. The court has directed that she ( Sadhvi Pragya) will have to be present before the NIA court whenever it issues summon. There is absolutely no evidence of her involvement," said Thakur's lawyer Shyam Devani. "Truth prevails in the end. Sadhvi devoted her life for nationalist cause. She has given a message to the people that truth always wins," added Thakur's brother-in law Bhagwan Bhai Jha. The High Court, however, rejected the bail of Lieutenant Colonel Prasad Purohit. The Malegaon blast case victims will now be moving the Supreme Court challenging Thakur's bail. On September 2008, a blast at Malegaon killed six and injured 101 others. (ANI)
