One arrested in missing nurse case

The police, who went to Karpada village following a tip-off,  had to make a hasty retreat on Wednesday after the villagers resorted to stone throwing. The accused succeeded in giving the police the slip. Some police personnel were injured in the stone throwing.

However, the police continued the search for Baldev and managed to arrest him on Friday, said Jodhpur Inspector General Umesh Mishra.

Mishra has rushed to Bilada following the news of the arrest. However, the police are still in search of  another accused Shahabuddin who acted as a conduit between Sohanal Boishnoi, a Public Health Engineering Department contractor who is in police custody, and the alleged contract killers of the nurse.

The police had declared Shahabuddin an absconder. They also announced rewards to those who helped them in the arrest. The police have been under pressure following the allegations that a minister in the Rajasthan Cabinet was behind the alleged abduction and killing of Bhanwari Devi after talks of their illicit relationship became public.
