Jodhpur: The CBI on Tuesday quizzed the wife of
Congress MLA Malkhan Singh in connection with the alleged
abduction of nurse Bhanwari Devi even as it continued
questioning of sacked Rajasthan Minister Mahipal Maderna,
arrested last week in the case.

Malkhan`s wife Kamala Visnoi was asked to appear for
questioning at the circuit house here before the CBI sleuths,
sources said.

Maderna was arrested on Friday in Jodhpur by the CBI
along with Parasram Bishnoi, the brother of Malkhan Singh,
hours after it filed charge sheet against three other arrested
accused.
He was sent to CBI custody till December 9 by the Jodhpur
court. A day after Maderna`s arrest, CBI officials had alleged
that they were being threatened.

Maderna was taken to Delhi on Sunday for further
questioning in the case as the agency feared law and order
situation here.

Meanwhile, the Rajasthan High Court has stayed the
permission of a lower court to conduct a voice test on accused
Sohan Lal Bishnoi to verify the authenticity of some audio
clips related to Bhanwari.
The clips have voices of Sohan Lal and another accused
Shahbuddin, both currently under judicial custody.

Shahbuddin, Baldev and Sohanlal have been chargesheeted
by the agency.

The CBI has so far questioned several people including
Malkhan Singh, his brother and sister, Mahipal Maderna`s wife
Leela Maderna and others.
