CBI may tell court missing Bhanwari Devi is dead
Jodhpur: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is likely to file a report in the Rajasthan High Court Tuesday stating that missing nurse Bhanwari Devi is dead, sources in the probe agency said here Monday.
The report is in connection with a habeas corpus petition filed by Bhanwari Devi`s husband Amarchand before he was arrested by the CBI on charges of being involved in the conspiracy of his wife`s disappearance.
During the last hearing, the CBI said that the nurse had been killed but the court demanded a closure report from the agency.
Amarchand was arrested Dec 8 by the CBI. On Sep 20, he had filed the petition in the high court accusing some influential people of being involved in her wife`s abduction.
"The case has almost been cracked as the remains of the nurse`s body have been recovered. Son of the nurse, Sahil, has confirmed that some of the items recovered from a 25-ft-deep crater and the canal, including a watch and some jewellery, belong to her," said a source close to the CBI.
Teams of the Central Forensic Science Laboratory and the CBI recovered two guns, a gunny bag, a bat, some bone fragments, a charred mobile phone, earrings, a locket, a watch and bracelet during a search that continued for three days.
Bhanwari Devi, who allegedly features in a compromising position with sacked Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna in a CD, had gone missing Sep 1 last year.
Maderna and Congress legislator from Luni constituency Malkhan Singh are among those who have been arrested in the case.
