Bhanwari case: Accused surrenders before police



Jodhpur: Bishna Ram gang member, Ashok Bishnoi, who was wanted in the Bhanwari Devi murder case, surrendered before police in Jaloda village of the district on Tuesday.

Bishnoi, who was allegedly involved in the disposal of Bhanwari Devi's body, was wanted by the CBI, police said.

He surrendered early in the morning and is now being taken to Jodhpur to hand him over to the CBI.

Three more accused -- Pukhraj, Dinesh and Indra -- are still absconding.

Bhanwari Devi had gone missing from Jodhpur's Bilara area on September 1 last year.

The remains of Bhanwari Devi were allegedly dumped by the accused in a canal in Jaloda village.

The CBI had claimed it has corroborative evidence to establish that the 36-year-old nurse was murdered and burnt allegedly at the behest of a political leader.
