NIA to grill Pragya in Samjhauta case

The National Investigation Agency is likely to interrogate Pragya in connection with the Samjhauta blast case. She was arrested by the Maharashtra ATS in 2008 in connection with the 2008 Malegaon blast. Swami Aseeman and during his interrogation revealed that he was introduced to Sunil Joshi by Pragya. NIA has got some clue of Pragya coordinating with other Hindu extremists like Sandeep Dange and Ramchandra to carry out more blasts ahead of her arrest. NIA is also investigating the role of other members of Pragya’s outfit in the Samjhauta blast case. NIA believes that cross-examination of Pragya is crucial to unearth the conspiracy behind the Samjhauta blast after Sunil Joshi’s death.
