Three persons including a lawyer have been arrested in connection with the murder of RTI activist Satish Shetty at Talegaon near here, police said today.
The trio was held late last night, they said.
Lawyer Vijay Dabhade reportedly had an old enmity with Shetty who had exposed many land scams in the Maval region, sources said.
The slain activist had lodged complaints against Dabhade in the past for attacking him, they said.
Two others booked in the case were Pramod Waghmore and Parshuram Telgu.
Shetty was murdered by two unidentified assailants at Talegaon, a small village about 45 km from here, on January 13 when he was taking a morning walk.
The arrested persons would be produced in a court at Wadgaon in Maval taluka, police said.
