Sadhvi not involved in crime, says father The father of Sadhvi Pragna Singh, who was arrested for alleged involvement in Malegaon blasts, on Friday said he does not believe her daughter would be involved in such a crime.
"She is a very sensitive person and cannot bear injustice. I cannot believe that she is involved in any such thing," Chandrapal Singh told reporters at his house in Punagam area of the city. "Since childhood, she had inclination for spiritual side of life. She became a Sadhvi two years ago and the family has lost contact with her since then," Singh, who migrated to Surat six years ago from Gwailor in Madhya Pradesh, said.
