The Maharashtra State Human Rights Commission on Tuesday issued summons to the state director general of police on the complaint of the custody of accused Pragya Singh Thakur in the 2008 Malegaon blast case. The commission has asked the police chief to appear before it on April 6.
A lawyer by profession, Aditya Mishra filed a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission in 2018. During that time Thakur (currently BJP MP) alleged in an interview on TV that he was tortured by the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of the state (Maharashtra) police after his arrest. The Commission referred the matter to the State Human Rights Commission.

It has been requested in the application that the commission should take cognizance of Thakur’s allegations as it is “an issue related to Article 21 (life and personal liberty) of the Indian Constitution”.
