Ujjain: Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, who was given clean chit in the 2008 Malegaon blast case by the National Investigation Agency recently, on Thursday took a holy dip in Kshipra river during the ongoing Kumbh Mela here.
Pragya took the holy dip at Ram ghat amid tight security, her aide Bhagwan Jha told PTI.
On Wednesday, she called off her two-day-long hunger strike after the authorities made the arrangements for her visit to the Kumbh Mela.
She had started hunger strike at the Government-run Pandit Khushilal Sharma Ayurvedic Hospital in Bhopal as the authorities earlier did not allow her to take part in the Kumbh Mela despite a Dewas court's order.
She is currently in judicial custody and undergoing treatment at the Ayurvedic hospital.
Last Friday NIA dropped all the charges against her and five others in the Malegaon blast case.
Seven people were killed in a blast in Malegaon town of Maharashtra on 29 September, 2008.
Pragya is also being tried for allegedly masterminding the killing of RSS pracharak Sunil Joshi in Dewas district in 2007.

The Supreme Court refused to grant interim bail to all the accused in the case.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Tuesday told a special court in Mumbai that it was of the opinion that stringent MCOCA was not applicable in the 2008 Malegaon blasts case and the Attorney Generals opinion is being sought in this regard.
Dismissing Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur's bail plea, a bench of justices JM Panchal and HL Gokhale said, "There is no merit in the petition".
