"A Rajasthan police team with the help of Madhya Pradesh police arrested Indira Bishnoi from Nemawar area last night," Additional Superintendent of Police (Dewas) Anil Patidar told PTI today.
Bhanwari Devi, a trained midwife and nurse, disappeared after a CD allegedly showing former Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna in compromising position with the 36-year-old nurse was aired by some news channels. She was abducted from Jodhpur's Bilara area on September 1, 2011 and murdered. Her body was handed over to another gang who burnt and dumped it in a canal. The remains of her body were found by the CBI four months later.
The CBI has so far filed three charge-sheets against 17 accused including former Rajasthan minister Mr Maderna and Malkhan Singh Bishnoi. Among the accused, 15 were in judicial custody, one was out on bail while Ms Bishnoi was absconding.
