The teenaged son of missing nurse Bhanwari Devi has confirmed that the watch, locket and toe-ring recovered from a canal here last week belonged to his mother.

Bhanwari Devi, 36, went missing under mysterious circumstances on September 1. Her body is yet to be found, but she is presumed dead.

Some burnt bones and a tooth were also recovered from the Rajiv Gandhi Canal at Jaloda village, around 100 km from here, where Bhanwari Devi’s body was allegedly abandoned. The CBI has sent the bones and tooth to New Delhi’s CFSL for DNA testing.

The CBI on Monday claimed it had corroborative evidence to establish that Bhanwari Devi was murdered and burnt after a conspiracy. Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna and legislator Malkhan Singh Bishnoi are among the 12 people arrested in connection with the case so far.

Bhanwari Devi allegedly had in her possession sex CDs showing her with the two political leaders and was blackmailing them.

According to the CBI, Maderna hired hit man Shahabuddin and his gang to carry out the kidnap and murder. They then handed over her body to another gang led by Bishna Ram Bishnoi who burnt the body in a pit outside Jaloda and scattered the remains in the canal.
