    Bhanwari case: CBI submits status report to HC

    New Delhi: The CBI team submitted its progress report to the Rajashtan High Court on Friday in the Bhanwari Devi case. The CBI told the court that it needs help from Rajasthan police.

    The next hearing is set for November 14 in the case.

    CNN-IBN has exclusively accessed details of the investigation, which suggest that Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna plays a key role in Bhanwari's mysterious disappearance.

    The CBI on Friday will continue questioning former Maderna for the second day.

    The Dalit nurse has been missing for over 70 days now and Maderna has been charged with her kidnapping, rape and murder.

    The CBI is expected to submit its progress report to the High Court on Friday.

    CNN-IBN has exclusively accessed details of the investigation, which suggest that a sleaze CD could be the cause of Bhanwari's mysterious disappearance.

    Sources say that the CD featured Bhanwari and former minister Mahipal Maderna was used by her for blackmail. But the CBI is yet to recover the CD in question. Also the camera and computer used to make it.

    The CBI on Thursday questioned Maderna in the case. Sources say that he has admitted to close links to the missing nurse.

    On September 1, the day she went missing, Bhanwari accompanied three men - Sohan, Shahabuddin and Khamba Ram to Bilara to sell her car. While Khambha drove Bhanwari's car, the rest followed in a Bolero .

    Sources say Shahabuddin was the purchaser. Significantly, Shahabuddin was introduced to her as Raju Seth while Bhanwari called herself Babli. The trio were together till 11 pm on September 1 and were joined by Sahi Ram.

    The CBI suspects Sahi Ram and Shahabuddin may have kidnapped Bhanwari and then handed her over to another gang, which could have murdered her.
