The NIA, which is probing the 2008 Malegaon blast case, submitted a chargesheet in a Mumbai court on Friday without naming one of the prime accused Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur.

This means that the Sadhvi, who has been in prison for the last eight years, might be able to walk free soon.

According to the NIA, a motorcycle allegedly belonging to Sadhvi Pragya which was used in the blasts was actually never used by her. It was used by another accused Ramachandra Kalasanghra, who is absconding.

She was accused by the Maharashtra ATS of having a hand in the blasts before the case was shifted to NIA in 2011.

According to reports, the NIA might tell the court that the Maharashtra ATS investigation was flawed.



In fact, the NIA might as well state that the RDX found in another accused Lt Colonel Prasad Purohit’s quarters in Deolali Army camp were planted by ATS.
