Case against Sadhvi lacks fairness: BJP
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | November 03, 2008 20:32 IST
Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday asked investigating agencies probing into the 2008 Malegaon blasts to make public the evidence against Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, who was arrested for her alleged involvement in the September 29 blasts.
Addressing media persons, Prasad said, "The BJP has been clearly of the view that terrorism needs to be dealt with firmly and that terrorists have got no religion. In the last four and a half years, terrorist have only become emboldened because of the soft approach of the UPA government."
'It has been so many days now since Pragya Thakur is in the custody of Anti Terrorism [Images] Squad, Mumbai, and no evidence till date has come in public domain showing the complicity of Pragya Thakur in the Malegaon blasts. The media has widely reported that nothing emerged against her even in the brain mapping and lie detector tests. Therefore, some very relevant questions do arise relating to the circumstances of investigation by the ATS of malegaon blast in which Pragya Thakur is alleged to be involved,' he said in a statement.
If the questions cannot be answered satisfactorily, it is clear that the entire investigation is lacking in fairness, transparency and may suffer the taint of 'a sponsored investigation', he added.
