The CBI which is probing the case had questioned Indra, after she was found talking to Bhanwari in the audio clip that was in the possession of the investigative agency. Indra said, "Bhanwari Devi told me that she had told everything to the Chief Minister and even given him the CD. I don't know anything personally but this is what she told me. She even said that the Chief Minister advised Mahipal Maderna to tackle the matter discreetly and ensure that Bhawari remains silent."
CM Gehlot rubbished the allegations by saying that thousands of people come to visit him daily and he was unsure if Bhawari ever came to meet him. [Read: CBI's Rs 5 lakh reward for info on Bhanwari's whereabouts]
