The CBI had sought four weeks time to submit its investigation report but the court gave 10 days time. Observing that the investigation in the matter was slow, the court asked the agency to expedite the investigation. Meanwhile, a CD purportedly showing former minister Mahipal Maderna and nurse Bhanwari Devi, which was shown on a news channel, was sent to the high court registrar by the channel.
The court said the CD was received by post and asked the CBI to take it if it would be useful in the investigation. The next hearing in the case will be on November 24. The CBI has questioned Maderna, who was removed from Cabinet by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on October 16 after his name cropped up in the case.
