Maderna arrested in Bhanwari case

Jodhpur, December 2
Sacked Rajasthan Minister Mahipal Maderna was today arrested by the CBI along with the brother of a ruling Congress MLA in Bhanwari Devi abduction case, hours after the agency filed a charge sheet against three other accused.

Maderna, 59, who was sacked from Ashok Gehlot Cabinet on October 16 after his name cropped up in the case, and Parasram Bishnoi, brother of ruling party MLA Malkhan Singh, were taken into custody today after another round of questioning.

The arrest came after the agency filed its first charge sheet in the case in a court here, charging the three accused Shahabuddin, Baldev Jat and Sohan Lal, who are in judicial custody, with entering into the conspiracy to abduct the nurse with an intent to murder her.

The CBI has accused them of abducting her with an intent to kill (Section 364 IPC), criminal conspiracy (120 B) and various Sections of SC and ST Act.

The agency in its charge sheet named Maderna and absconding suspect Sahiram.

The agency, which is yet to trace the nurse who went missing on September 1, filed the charge sheet in the case as the 90-day deadline following the arrest of the three accused was about to expire next week. PTI
