Malegaon blast accused and BJP's Bhopal Lok Sabha seat candidate Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur on Friday said former Anti-Terrorist Squad chief Hemant Karkare died during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks because she had cursed him for treating her badly.

She said she had cursed him for treating her "very badly" while she was in custody for her involvement in the Malegaon blast case.

"Hemant Karkare falsely implicated me. He died of his karma. I told him, he will be destroyed. I told him his entire dynasty will be erased," Pragya said.

Karkare was killed along with two other senior police officers while fighting terrorists during the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai in November 2008.

"Maine kaha tera (Karkare) sarvanash hoga," she said.

The BJP on Wednesday fielded Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur from the Bhopal seat, where she is set to take on Congress heavyweight and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijay Singh.
