Mahipal Maderna and Bhanwari Devi Case

In 2011, Mahipal Maderna was accused of being involved in a case relating to the disappearance of a nurse named Bhanwari Devi. Bhanwari, who worked as an auxiliary nurse/midwife in the Jaliwada village (Bilara tehsil) went missing on 1 September. Her husband Amarchand alleged that she was abducted on orders of Maderna. 

Subsequently, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot sacked Maderna as a minister on 26 October. It was alleged that Bhanwari Devi was negotiating a multi-crore deal with Maderna and his opponents to the trade of a CD in which she was seen in a “compromising position” with Maderna and others. 

In November 2011, Rehana, the girlfriend of the key suspect Shahabuddin, leaked an audio clip to the reporters. The clip was recorded during her discussion with Shahabuddin in the Jodhpur Central Jail. In the clip, Shahabuddin is heard telling Rehana that Bhanwari Devi was handed over to the gang of Pradeep Godara, a criminal wanted by the Rajasthan police in several cases. He is also heard telling that he had been falsely implicated in the case, and had no clue what happened to Bhanwari.

CBI arrested Maderna on 3 December and questioned him. He was confronted with the key suspects, Sahiram Bishnoi, Shahabuddin, and Sohan Lal Bishnoi in jail. Later it was revealed that Maderna and Congress legislator Malkhan Singh were hand-in-glove in the entire conspiracy as the nurse was blackmailing both of them.

The two politicians allegedly roped in a Sahiram Bishnoi, who hired Sohan Lal, Balia, and Shahabuddin for the task of kidnapping the nurse. On 6 January Central Bureau of Investigation claimed to know the whereabouts of the disposal of Bhanwari Devi’s body. Investigating officers were praised by the Central Bureau of Investigation director for solving this case in 100 days. The agency is about to file a second charge sheet after admission of the Bishnaram gang on the disposal of Bhanwari Devi’s body at Jaloda village near Osian village in Jodhpur.

Dilip Singh Murder Case

Earlier in 1970, Maderna along with Vijay Poonia was also accused of the murder of a student Dilip Singh nephew of Bhairon Singh Shekhawat (ex-VP, India) in Jaipur. On 3 February 1970, Dilip Singh was allegedly beaten at room no.42 in Vivekanand hostel and FIR was lodged at Gandhinagar Police Station with offenses under Sections 307 and 452 read with Section 149, and Section 148, IPC.

Dilip Singh succumbed to injuries on 14 February 1970. Later, the investigation was handed over to CBI and the case was altered to one for offenses under Sections 148, 302, 307, 453 read with Section 149 and Section 120B, IPC. However both the principal accused were acquitted subsequently.
