A team of Ahmedabad police and Crime Branch officers have left for Junagarh to probe into the allegations levelled by the parents of RTI activist Amit Jethava that he was killed by BJP MP Dinu Solanki.
Joint Commissioner of Police Satish Sharma said the team left for Junagadh even as the parents are yet to give a formal complaint to us in this regard.
Meanwhile,Ahmedabad-based lawyer Anand Yagnik today gave a written statement to the Sola High Court police,stating that Jethava had met him on July 19 at the HC.
He said Jethava expressed fears that Solanki would kill him as he had filed a PIL inquiring the MPs role in an alleged land mining scam in the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary.
Yagnik told the police said Jethava had asked him to extend moral and legal support in his efforts to check illegal mining.
He further said that he was giving the statement as Jethava was killed in front of the high court the very next day.
