Bhanwari Devi had gone missing from Jodhpur's Bilara area Sep 1. Prominent Jat leader Mahipal Maderna was sacked from the state cabinet by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Oct 16 over allegations that he had a role in her disappearance.

"Those who were interrogated on Saturday included Parasram and one Goverdhan Choudhary, a lime kiln owner in Jodhpur rural. It is suspected the Bhanwari’s body might have been disposed of in a lime kiln,” a CBI source said.

Malkhan Singh, a lawmaker from Luni constituency, is believed to have political rivalry with Maderna and has also been interrogated by the CBI twice in this case.

It was alleged that the nurse had started blackmailing Maderna on the basis of a CD showing both of them in a compromising position.

Sources said that Shahabuddin, the key suspect in Bhanwari Devi kidnapping case who has been arrested by the CBI, has revealed that the nurse is dead.The CBI Saturday continued to search many areas in Jodhopur rural to trace missing nurse.
