Bhanwari case:HC disposes of habeas corpus petition

Jodhpur: The Rajasthan High court today disposed of the habeas corpus petition filed by Amarchand, the husband of slain nurse Bhanwari Devi, and observed that police need to be sensitive while dealing with such cases.

The police should be sensitive while dealing with such cases, the division bench of Justices Govind Mathur and N K Jain said.

Amarchand, who is presently under judicial custody in connection with his wife`s murder case, had filed the petition in September last year following which the court had issued notices to the Home Secretary and senior police officers.

The CBI filed second charge sheet in the Bhanwari abduction and murder case on February 29 in which Amarchand is named accused among others. He has been booked under IPC sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 364 (kidnapping in order to murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence or giving false information to screen offender).
