Bhanwari case: Bishnoi refuses to record statement
Jodhpur: One of the main accused in the
missing nurse Bhanwari Devi case, Om Prakash Bishnoi, on Wednesday
refused to record his statement before the magistrate and was
remanded to judicial custody.
The CBI had moved an application in the court yesterday
for recording Bishnoi`s statements, and brought him to the
court today. However, he refused to record the statement and
came out, sources said.
The CBI court later sent him to judicial custody.
According to the legal experts, the statements of the
three members of Bishan Ram gang are important for CBI to gain
a firm grip in the case.
However, the evidences and belongings of Bhanwari,
collected by the CBI from Jaloda would play a crucial role.
The CBI is also searching another gang member Ashok
The statements of at least one of the three will protect
the CBI from their getting hostile in the court.
Meanwhile, in another development, the court today
declared Indra Bishnoi along with Pukh Raj absconder.
"The court also ordered to attach their properties," told
SS Yadav, counsel for CBI.
Arrest warrants had been issued by the same court against
all of them on December 23.
All the three had tried to obtain anticipatory bail from
the court but their application was rejected by the court.
They continue to be the crucial accused in the case for
the CBI, as the agency was planning to file a charge sheet in
Indra played a crucial role in the abduction and
purported killing of Bhanwari Devi.
The CBI had informed the Rajasthan High Court yesterday
that Bhanwari was no more and requested the court to quash the
habeas corpus petition filed by her husband Amarchand.
