The Special National Investigation Agency (NIA) Court on Tuesday rejected a bail plea by Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur in the 2008 Malegaon blast case. The agency had earlier said in its charge sheet that there was no case against Thakur due to lack of evidence.

The NIA had said on June 6 it had no objection to the bail application filed by Thakur, and left it to the court to decide whether she should be given bail.

A victim's father, Syed Nisar Ahmed, a resident of Malegaon, had intervened and opposed the application.
