Police teams sent to Junagadh to investigate RTI activist's murder
Times of India
Ahmedabad Police has sent teams to Junagadh to investigate the murder of RTI activist Amit Jethwa, who was killed in front of Gujarat High Court from a point blank range by two assailants.
"Police are investigating all aspects linked to Jethwa's murder, including the name of persons figuring in the PIL on illegal mining filed by him," DCP Brijeshkumar Jha said.
The PIL against illegal mining on the periphery of Gir forest area has named BJP MP from Junagadh, Dinu Solanki and his family members.
"We have found that the bike used by the assailants was stolen from Dholka town," Jha said, adding that the bag left by the two at the site of the incident had clothes with marks of a Junagadh laundry.
The second lead in the case is that Jethwa had returned from Gandhinagar, before he was shot dead near the state High Court on Tuesday, Jha said.
The police have sent teams to Junagadh to investigate the case, he said.
Jethwa's father Bhikabhai yesterday alleged that Dinu Solanki could be behind his son's killing.
