Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted bail to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur accused of plotting the September 2008 blasts in Maharashtra’s Malegaon, in which seven people were killed.
The Court, however, denied bail to Lt Col Prasad Purohit- another accused in the case.
The court directed Pragya Singh Thakur to furnish a bond of Rs 5 lakh and two sureties of the same amount.
The Court has also ordered to Pragya Singh Thakur to submit her passport to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and appear on dates in trial court.
Meanwhile, the victims of the Malegaon blasts have decided to challenge the bail given to Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur in the Supreme Court.
Sadhvi Pragya and Col. Purohit had earlier filed pleas in the Bombay High Court seeking bail. Earlier in March, the High Court had reserved its order on the bail plea filed by Purohit.
Notably, on September 29, 2008, two bombs fitted on a motorcycle exploded in Malegaon, around 270 km from Mumbai, killing seven people and injuring over 100.
