Pragya Singh, a Malegaon blast accused and BJP's Bhopal Lok Sabha seat candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur had  said that Karkare died during the terror attacks as she "cursed" him for torturing her.


"Hemant Karkare was called by the (Malegaon blast) probe panel member to Mumbai. I was then in a Mumbai jail. The commission member told him that if he didn't have any proof against me, he should not unlawfully hold me in jail," she said.

"But he (Karkare) said he will do anything to bring the proof... will do anything... will create it, bring it from here and there, but will not release Sadhvi," she said.
Karkare was killed along with two other senior police officers while fighting terrorists during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai in November 2008.
