What is the Bhanwari Devi murder case?

In 2011, the Bhanwari Devi kidnapping-cum-murder case created turmoil in the political landscape of Rajasthan. Bhanwari Devi was an auxiliary nurse midwife posted at a sub-centre in Jaliwada village, around 120 km from Jodhpur, in Rajasthan. She went ‘missing’ on September 1, 2011.

Bhanwari Devi, then 36, had disappeared after video footage showing her with then Rajasthan minister Mahipal Maderna in a ‘compromising position’ surfaced and was aired by some news channels. Her half-burnt body was found months later in a canal in Jodhpur.

Congress leaders Mahipal Maderna and Malkhan Singh Bishnoi along with 15 other accused were in jail since 2011 as undertrials. They have been facing trial in a special court under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and other legal provisions relating to kidnapping and murder.
