Where is Dinu Solanki?

Where is BJP MP from Junagadh, Dinu Solanki? A contentious question that has no clear answer as of today. After the arrest of his nephew, Shiva Solanki, the MP has been hard to trace. Repeated attempts made by TOI to contact the MP failed as his mobile phones were switched off.

"Shiva's arrest has proved to be quite revealing. During his interrogation Shiva has given some interesting information. We now have some evidence pointing towards the involvement of a top politician in this regard," said crime branch officials investigating the case. But they were not naming the MP yet.

Jethava, an activist who had exposed the illegal mining mafia in Saurashtra through RTI, was gunned down outside the Gujarat High Court on SG Highway on July 28. Five persons, including Shiva, have been arrested in this regard till date.

"During questioning of Shiva, the primary evidence uncovered by crime branch officials suggest that Shiva is not the only mastermind of Jethava's murder. There are more people involved," said investigating police officials.

Since the name of an MP is now figuring in the list of accused, the cops are being extra careful in approaching this subject. "Without irrefutable evidence we cannot do much in this regard. We hope to gather some more evidence by September 20," said police officials.

From the day of Jethava's murder, Dinu Solanki, has been conspicuous by his absence in Parliament. "Even in Kodinar, he has not been seen publicly for long now," said police sources.

The other person that the cops are gunning for is the historysheeter who shot at Jethava, Sailesh Pandya. He too has been missing since the day of murder.
