A former public prosecutor in the Malegaon blast case has slammed BJP politician Pragya Thakur for claiming that she was tortured while being investigated by a team led by 26/11 hero Hemant Karkare for her alleged involvement in the incident. Two days ago, Pragya Thakur had kicked up a row by alleging that the police officer was killed by terrorists during the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks because she had placed a curse on him. "Hemant Karkare was anti-national. He was dharam virudh (anti-religion). You won't believe this, but I said that he will be destroyed. Soon after, terrorists killed him," the politician, who is contesting the Lok Sabha elections from Bhopal on a BJP ticket, said. She withdrew her controversial remark in the face of mounting criticism on Friday.
