Sadhvi Pragya, 7 others acquitted in Sunil Joshi murder case

Now Sadhvi Pragyaji is acquitted from this case. In many cases, even chargesheet have not been filed. She is suffering from cancer and various diseases. Still she is not getting bail, while many others on murder and terrorism charges are roaming freely on bail. Why this bias with Sadhvi Pragya ? Is it because she is Hindu ? – Editor, Hindujagruti

Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur was today acquitted along with seven others by a local court in the murder case of RSS parcharak Sunil Joshi for lack of evidence.

First Additional District and Sessions Judge Rajiv M Apte acquitted Sadhvi Pragya, Harsh Solanki, Vasudev Parmar, Ramcharan Patel, Anandraj Kataria, Lokesh Sharma, Rajendra Choudhary and Jitendra Sharma, saying there was not enough evidence against the accused to nail them in the murder.

Joshi was shot dead here on December 29, 2007.

Initially, the probe had hit a dead-end, but later arrest of a person in Rajasthan led the district police to name Sadhvi Pragya and others as accused in the case.

The trial from the district court was shifted to the Special NIA Court in Bhopal a few years ago. However, the matter was shifted back to the district court on the ground it was a murder case and doesn’t come under the ambit of NIA, which is an anti-terror agency.

Joshi was once a close aide of Sadhvi Pragya, but they fell out later.

Sadhvi Pragya is in judicial custody in connection with terror cases. She was not present in the court here when the verdict was announced.

Hearing the not guilty verdict, Anandraj and Vasudev, who were present in the court along with relatives and supporters, broke down.
