NEW DELHI — The BJP Friday distanced itself from Pragya Singh Thakur’s arguable remark that IPS officer Hemant Karkare died in 26/11 Mumbai terror assaults as she had cursed him, announcing it was once her private view which she would possibly have made “because of years of bodily and psychological torture”.
“The BJP believes that Karkare died whilst bravely preventing terrorists. The BJP has at all times regarded as him a martyr, ” the birthday celebration mentioned in a damage-control workout.
The birthday celebration, which has fielded Malegaon blast accused Thakur from Bhopal within the Lok Sabha election, claimed she had suffered “bodily and psychological torture” for years in police custody that would possibly have led to her to make this type of remark.
The remark is her “private view”, it added.
Karkare, who headed the Mumbai anti-terror squad, had died within the Mumbai terror assaults in 2008.
Addressing BJP staff in Bhopal, Thakur claimed Karkare died as she “cursed” him for “torturing” her in custody.
