BJP MP's nephew arrested for role in Amit Jethwa murder case
Shiva Solanki, nephew of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Dinu Solanki was on Tuesday arrested near the Rajkot airport in connection with the murder of RTI activist Amit Jethwa.
"We arrested Shiva Solanki while he was on his way to Mumbai," said Police Crime Branch Chief Mohan Jha.
It is believed that Shiva had hired the contract killers to kill Jethwa. He was shot dead outside the Gujarat High Court on July 20.
Earlier, police arrested a constable Bahadursinh Dhirubha Wadher from Junagadh district and one Sanjay Chauhan in connection with the case.
Jethwa had filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the High Court, which alleged that mining activities were being carried out in the Una and Kodinar areas of Saurashtra with the support of Dinu Solanki and his relatives.
Jethwa had further alleged that the Solankis were also running illegal mines and stone crushers in a village on the border of the Gir forest. (ANI)
