Jodhpur, Apr 21 (ANI): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday filed a third chargesheet in the Bhanwari Devi murder case, adding that more arrests where likely to take place in the near future.
The CBI filed the chargesheet at the district court in Rajasthan's Jodhpur District where the police also produced the accused persons.
CBI lawyer Ashok Joshi told the reporters about the details of the chargesheet that was filed.
"In the case of Bhanwari Devi's abduction and murder, today the CBI has filed a chargesheet here in the court against Indira Bishnoi, the sister of the legislator of Loni and also against four other people. The other persons are Pokhraj Bishnoi, Dinesh Bishnoi, Reshmram Bishnoi who have been accused," he said.
Joshi also added that the investigation was kept open, as more arrests are likely to be made in the near future.
"We may call it a second supplementary chargesheet. The investigation has still been kept open and more chargesheets would be filed against other accused and more people would be arrested," he said.
In the third chargesheet, a total of 16 witnesses and 17 accused have been named.
Meanwhile, Congress party legislators Mahipal Maderna and Malkhan Bishnoi are under judicial custody along with 16 other accused.
Indira, who is Malkhan's sister, has been absconding ever since her name crept up in the case.
36-year old Bhanwari Devi, who was a nurse by profession, was abducted and murdered last year after a CD allegedly showing Maderna in a compromising position with her came to light.
According to CBI sources, Bhanwari had demanded fifty lakh rupees from Maderna. (ANI)
