CBI arrests BJP MP in connection with the murder of RTI activist Amit Jethwa
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Dinu Bogha Solanki in connection with the murder of RTI activist Amit Jethwa. The BJP MP from Junagarh, Gujarat was called to the CBI headquarters yesterday morning and after a full day questioning, the CBI placed him under arrest. Later, the CBI issued a statement through the spokesperson Kanchan Prasad confirming that the Lok Sabha MP from Junagadh has been taken into custody and would be produced in the court on Wednesday.
Jethwa had waged a battle against illegal mining in Gir Forest of Gujarat using RTI and had also filed several petitions in the Gujarat High Court. He was murdered for which the police conducted investigation but the poor progress of the case led to transferring the case to the CBI by the high court.
