Chargesheet silent on BJP MP's role

The city crime branch, which investigated the murder of RTI activist and whistleblower Amit Jethava, has given a clean chit to BJP MP from Junagadh Dinu Bogha Solanki. In the chargesheet filed on Thursday, constable Bahadursinh Vadher and Solanki's nephew Pratap alias Shiva Solanki have been held wholly responsible for the killing. The chargesheet also says that Jethava was killed for a supari of Rs 11 lakh. The chargesheet, filed against five persons, is silent on the parliamentarian's role in the incident, though Jethava's family members have been claiming that it was Solanki who was behind the murder. Anticipating that the Gujarat police would not 'touch' the sitting MP, Jethava's father has even sought transfer of investigation to a central agency. The murder took place a few days after Jethava filed a PIL against the MP's alleged illegal mining activities in the prohibited Gir sanctuary.
