Bhanwari case: Bishnoi shifted to jail, Maderna rehospitalised

Jodhpur: A week after a local court ordered to shift back Mahipal Maderna and Malkhan Singh Bishnoi, the key accused in the Bhanwari Devi murder case, from hospital to jails outside the city, one of them was sent back to his jail on Monday.

Bishnoi was taken from Shri Ram Hospital to Ajmer this morning after the Ajmer Jail administration issued order to bring him back to the jail with immediate effect.

But Maderna, could not be dispatched for Jaipur jail on account of sudden pain in his heart.

He was rushed to the MDM Hospital here late evening instead.

A senior doctor from the hospital said that he is under observation and being subjected to various tests.

"Though the ECG was normal but we will carry out some more tests before arriving at any decision, whether he is to be admitted for the treatment or discharged," he said.

The order of the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (SC/ST Cases) came on a CBI plea objecting to their stay in private hospitals in Jodhpur.

Maderna and Bishnoi were admitted in separate private hospitals in Jodhpur since November 9 and January 8 respectively.

36-year-old Bhanwari, who was an auxiliary nurse, had gone missing from Jodhpur's Bilara area on September 1, 2011.

During the CBI probe, it was found that she was abducted and killed and her body burnt at Jaloda. Her remains and belongings were later dumped in the Rajiv Gandhi Lift Canal, which were recovered by the CBI.
