Sadhvi Pragya has been in the eye of the storm ever since her candidature was announced by the BJP from Bhopal Lok Sabha constituency. Speaking to her party workers, she had shared her ordeal about how she had to go through unimaginable custodial torture for allegations of involvement in the 2008 Malegaon Blast case. Late Hemant Karkare was the Chief of Mumbai ATS when Sadhvi Pragya was taken into custody.
While speaking at a public meeting Sadhvi Pragya had implied that Hemant Karkare died at the hands of terrorists because he tortured a Sadhvi. She later withdrew her statement and apologised for the same saying that she was sharing her personal experience.
