Ahmedabad, Oct 27 (IANS) The father of Sadhvi Pragya Thakur, the prime accused in the Malegaon bomb blast case, is observing 'maun vrat' (vow of silence) and will not speak to anyone for three days, said a relative here Monday.
The relative of Sadhvi's father Chandrapal Thakur told IANS, 'Whatever it is, you will have to speak to him on Oct 30, when he will have completed his period of silence.'
The Sadhvi is also observing a 'maun vrat' and not replying to queries by sleuths. A court in Nashik Monday granted permission to the Anti Terrorism Squad of Maharashtra Police to conduct narco tests and other scientific procedures on her.
She was arrested last week along with Shivnarayan Singh and Shyam Bhavarlal Sahu for alleged involvement in the Malegaon bomb blast in which five people were killed.
