Jodhpur: Bishna Ram gang member, Ashok
Bishnoi, who was wanted in the Bhanwari Devi murder case,
surrendered before police in Jaloda village of the district
on Tuesday.

Bishnoi, who was allegedly involved in the disposal of
Bhanwari Devi`s body, was wanted by the CBI, police said.

He surrendered early in the morning and is now being
taken to Jodhpur to hand him over to the CBI.

Three more accused -- Pukhraj, Dinesh and Indra -- are
still absconding.

Bhanwari Devi had gone missing from Jodhpur`s Bilara area
on September 1 last year.

The remains of Bhanwari Devi were allegedly dumped by
the accused in a canal in Jaloda village.

The CBI had claimed it has corroborative evidence to
establish that the 36-year-old nurse was murdered and burnt
allegedly at the behest of a political leader.
