Amarchand is suspected to have played a part in the kidnap of Bhanwari and later her murder. She has been missing since Sept 1 from Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The CBI's suspicion was raised when Amarchand tried to flee from the CBI's questioning centre in Jodhpur after he was posed with some disturbing questions. He has been arrested following this attempt. His remand however ends today (Dec 14).
After some resistance, Amarchand is understood to have blurted out some startling facts and is touted to become a crucial witness in the case. He revealed that his youngest daughter was actually fathered by Congress MLA Malkhan Singh. Singh was earlier questioned in the case and is one of the accused.
Maderna, during the course of interrogation had revealed that Malkan Singh and Bhanwari Devi had a long relationship and it was Malkhan Singh who introduced the nurse to Maderna. The sex CD that had come out also backed the claim that showed Maderna and Bhanwari in a compromising position.
It was also found by the CBI that Amarchand had taken his car to repair to Pipda on the day Bhanwari went missing. The CBI later found that no repairs were carried out in the said car which led to suspicions on why he took the car there.
