Bombay High Court (HC) asked National Investiation Agency (NIA) Monday to file an affidavit by February 5 stating whether it would provide treatment to Pragya Singh Thakur at Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital in Parel. She is accused of 2008 Malegaon blasts.
HC also asked NIA to state if it had objection to Thakur, diagnosed with third-stage breast cancer, being released on bail on medical ground.
This, after counsel Mahesh Jethmalani contended she needed bail for treatment. Counsel for NIA Rohini Salian countered Thakur could be treated in police custody. Thakur told court she could undergo treatment at Jawaharlal Hospital in Bhopal or Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital in Mumbai.
She is facing trial in Madhya Pradesh for allegedly murdering RSS member Sunil Joshi.
