Sacked Rajasthan Minister Mahipal Maderna was again grilled on Friday by the CBI in the Bhanwari Devi disappearance case in which he is the key suspect. Mr. Maderna, who has earlier been questioned twice by the agency, was questioned for about four hours at Circuit House here, CBI sources said.

After two days of questioning, he was admitted to a local hospital on November 12 following a complaint of chest pain. He was discharged on November 18 evening and the agency officials on Friday asked Maderna to appear for questioning.

The agency got his medical report reviewed by doctors at AIIMS who have understood to have declared him fit enough to face the CBI questioning, agency sources said.

Besides Maderna, the agency also summoned Maderna's driver, Mohan Bishnoi -- the husband of Indira Bishnoi and brother-in-law of MLA Malkhan Singh, one Riyaz who had been in contact with one of the accused Shahbuddin, for questioning.

Maderna, who was sacked from Ashok Gehlot Cabinet on October 16 after his name cropped up in the case, is accused of being involved in the abduction of Bhanwari, an auxiliary nurse midwife. - PTI
