Jodhpur: A local court on Friday granted five- day police custody of Sohan Lal Bishnoi and Shahabuddin, the key accused in Bhanwari Devi disappearance case, in connection with a case registered against them for getting two SIM cards using fake identities.
The Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate, Pipar, granted the custody of the duo after police submitted a production warrant for the same in the court.
Police had sought their custody under the relevant sections of IT Act.
Earlier, a case was registered two days ago at the Pipar police station, about 60 km from here, against Bishnoi and Shahabuddin for using fake documents to procure SIM cards used in the alleged abduction of nurse Bhanwari Devi.
While checking the call details of the missing nurse, the CBI had found these two numbers which were apparently used by Bishnoi.
The probe agency had found that the two numbers were issued in the name of 'Sundaram' and 'Jairam'.
