Malegaon blast accused and BJP's Bhopal Lok Sabha seat candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur has claimed police officer Hemant Karkare died during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks as she "cursed" him for torturing her. She apologised for the controversial remarks, but the BJP distanced itself, describing them as "personal", while the late IPS officer's colleagues berated her for insulting him. "I felt that the enemies of the country were being benefited from it, so I take back my statement and apologise for it. It was my personal pain," an aide quoted her as saying.
