The CBI has also arrested Bhanwari Devi's husband Amarchand on charges of not cooperating during the questioning.
Bhanwari, posted as an auxiliary nurse midwife at a sub- centre in Jaliwada village went missing on September 1 after a CD allegedly showing Maderna in a compromising position with her had come to light.
Her husband, Amarchand, has alleged she was abducted at the behest of Maderna and his associates.
59-year-old Maderna has so far denied the charges. (ANI)
