Jodhpur: Congress MLA Malkhan Singh on Saturday did not turn up for questioning by CBI despite its summons in connection with the missing case of nurse Bhanwari Devi.

"The CBI had summoned him today but he did not turn up. Though his son came in the evening to tell that he was in New Delhi but his absence has been taken as his avoidance of the summons," said CBI spokesperson Dharini Mishra.

Singh has been interrogated four times so far and was summoned after a long pause.

Meanwhile the CBI, took Bhanwari's arrested husband Amarchand to Pipar, where the last location of the missing nurse's mobile was found soon after her abduction on September 1, to verify the facts stated by him.

Amarchand in his FIR had said that he had gone to Pipar on September 1, the day Bhanwari went missing, to get his car repaired.

Amarchand was arrested on December 8 by CBI for his conflicting versions during questioning and being "un-cooperative".

He had said he called Bhanwari on September 1, after getting his car repaired, to receive her at a restaurant. For this CBI has quizzed his driver, the garage mechanic, and the restaurant manager.

The CBI has already recorded the statements of driver of Amarchand's car Farookh on Friday.

Malkhan Singh's sister, Indra Bishnoi, who also is one of the main suspects of the case and has been interrogated a number of times, is also absconding apparently with a view to evade CBI summons.

The CBI said it will issue Singh fresh summons and will take any further avoidance seriously.
