Jodhpur: A Central Forensic Science
Laboratory (CFSL) team headed by a deputy director rank
official on Thursday arrived here to examine the spot where midwife
Bhanwari Devi`s body was disposed off.

The team visited the spot in Jaloda village where
Bhanwari`s body is believed to have been burnt in a crater and
is collecting evidences, police sources said.

Evidences will also be collected with the help of divers
from a canal in which the remains were thrown after setting
the body on fire in the pit.

"It was revealed by Kailash Jakhar, who was nabbed on the
Jodhpur-Ajmer highway following a tip off and later placed
under arrest, that he obtained Bhanwari Devi`s body from Sohan
Lal Bishnoi and Shahabuddin after they picked her up from
Bilara on September 1," the sources said.

Sources said that he has admitted to have taken
possession of Bhanwari Devi and disposed her off in Jaloda
village near Phalodi, about 150 kms from the city.

Jakhar is an active member of the Bishna Ram Bishnoi
gang. Bishnaram, who was carrying a cash reward of Rs 5 lakh
on head, was also arrested yesterday in Pune and was brought
to Jodhpur today.

He is also being interrogated at the CBI`s local office.

The CBI director A P Singh and Additional Director Salim
Ali have also arrived here to monitor the progress in the case
which is now at the conclusive end.

Bhanwari Devi, who was an ANM, had gone missing from
Jodhpur`s Bilara area on September 1 last year.
