Hemant Karkare arrested Pragya Thakur in 2008 after he tracked down the motorcycle used in the blast belonged to Sadhvi. The NIA in 2015 gave a clean chit to Thakur however the trial court refused to let her go as the court said that it was hard to believe her innocence as her Motorcycle was used in the blast.
