EC issued notice to Sadhvi Pragya

The Election Commission (EC) has decided to issue a sumoto notice to Malegaon blast accused and BJP candidate from Bhopal Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur over her remarks against police officer Hemant Karkare, who was killed in the 26/11 terror attack.

The returning officer already secured a report from official sources in this regard. It may be recalled that addressing BJP workers in Bhopal on Thursday night, Thakur had claimed that Karkare died during the attacks as she “cursed” him for torturing her.

However, after her remarks kicked up a row, she tendered an apology on Friday. Official sources said that after issuing notice, she is expected to give reply within 24 hours.
