Shiva Solanki, nephew of BJP MP Dinu Solanki was today arrested from near the Rajkot airport in connection with the murder of RTI activist and green crusader Amit Jethwa here, police said.

"We have arrested Shiva Solanki, from near the Rajkot airport while he was on his way to Mumbai," Police Crime

Jethwa had filed a Public Interest Litigation against illegal mining in Gir forest region in High court few days
