Sadhvi gets Bombay HC nod to travel in AC coach

February 09, 2012 17:45 IST
The Bombay high court on Thursday permitted Sadhvi Pragya Singh, accused in the Malegaon 2008 blast case, to travel by an air-conditioned compartment to attend proceedings in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh in connection with the Sunil Joshi murder case trial.

The division bench comprising Justice V Kanade and Justice P D Kode passed the order after hearing at length arguments advanced by her counsel.

The sadhvi had made several appeals explaining her health condition and stated that she needed comfortable travel. However, the lower court had rejected her plea.

She will now travel to Madhya Pradesh and attend hearing in connection with the case, which is being probed by the National Investigation Agency. She would however have to bear the expenses for her travel.
