Jaipur: In the latest development in the Bhanwari Devi case, Congress MLA Malkhan Singh Bhisnoi will give his sample for DNA testing to ascertain whether he is the biological father of Bhanwari Devi’s younger daughter or not, a claim denied by him.

The test is being conducted in the wake of confessions made by Bhanwari Devi’s husband before the CBI that Congress MLA is the father of his younger daughter.

In this regard, the blood sample of the Bhanwari Devi’s younger daughter and her brother Sahil were also taken by the CBI. The remand of Malkhan Singh ends on Wednesday.  

Meanwhile, the CBI on Monday arrested Umesha Ram Bishnoi, another accused in the case of missing nurse Bhanwari Devi, sources said. It is the ninth arrest in the case.

The agency has got the custody of Umesh Ram Bishnoi till January 4 who had surrendered before a Rajasthan Police officer on Monday.

Sources said the CBI officials interrogated Umesha Ram at the Circuit House here. The CBI is still hunting for Bisnaram, another suspect who is absconding, the sources added.

Bhanwari, posted as an auxiliary nurse and midwife at a sub-centre in Jaliwada village, nearly 120-km from Jodhpur, went missing on September one.
