She appeared in court on Monday. On Tuesday, Special Judge PR Satre granted exemption from Thakur from appearance in the court. Earlier, his lawyer JP Mishra had filed an application saying that the MP has difficulty in coming here regularly due to health and safety reasons.
The lawyer said in the application, “Thakur is suffering from various ailments and is undergoing treatment at AIIMS.
The lawyer said that apart from him, two personal assistants also live with him. Therefore, he has a lot of difficulty in taking all these security personnel along. Thakur said that he is a member of Parliament and has responsibility towards the people of his constituency.
Special Public Prosecutor Avinash Rasal said that Judge Sitre took notice of Thakur’s plea and exempted him from appearing in court regularly. Together they told him that whenever needed they would have to appear in court.
On December 19, 2020, Judge Sitre gave Thakur the “last chance” to appear before the court. The judge had expressed unhappiness over not being present in his court twice last month. Thakur appeared in court in June 2019, as the court had ordered that all the seven accused should appear in the court once a week.
Six other accused in the case include Lt Col Prasad Purohit, Sameer Kulkarni, Ramesh Upadhyay, Sudhakar Chaturvedi, Ajay Rahirkar and Sudhakar Dwivedi. The hearing of the case came to a halt in March last year due to the lockdown imposed due to Covid-19.
In October 2018, the court had framed terrorism charges against Purohit, Thakur and five others.
