A special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act court here on Tuesday rejected the bail application of sadhvi Pragnya Singh Thakur, accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast.

Her lawyer, Rameshwar Gite, had contended that she had no role in the blast case.

On earlier occasions too, the court rejected Ms. Thakur’s bail applications, made on medical grounds. Her plea, alleging that she was illegally detained, was also rejected.
