NF Bureau: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday distanced itself from Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur’s controversial comment on 26/11 martyr Hemant Karkare.
A press release issued by the saffron party said, “The BJP believes that Karkare died while bravely fighting terrorists. The party considers the IPS officer a martyr. This is Sadhvi Pragya’s personal view which she might have given due to years of physical and mental torture she had faced”.
Addressing BJP workers, Pragya Singh said ATS chief Hemant Karkare died in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks as she “cursed” him for “torturing” her in custody.
