Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who last week got a clean chit in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, today broke her two-day hunger strike at Vande Mataram Ashram of Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Ujjain. On Friday, the National Investigation Agency dropped all the charges against Sadhvi and five others in the Malegaon blast case.

She called off her fast as the authorities made the arrangements for her to visit the ongoing Kumbh Mela here.

Sadhvi had gone on a hunger strike at the government-run Pandit Khushilal Sharma Ayurvedic Hospital in Bhopal as the authorities earlier did not allow her to take part in the Kumbh Mela despite a Dewas court’s order.

Pragya is also being tried for allegedly masterminding the killing of the RSS pracharak Sunil Joshi at Dewas in 2007.
