Ahmedabad: In a major respite for former BJP MP from Junagadh Dinu Bogha Solanki, the Gujarat High Court on Thursday granted him conditional bail in the Amit Jethava murder case.

The former parliamentarian had been sentenced to life imprisonment along with six others for murder of Jethava, an RTI activist.

The HC suspended the sentence, while observing that Solanki’s conviction by the CBI court was prima facie erroneous and based on assumptions and presumptions.

The court ordered Dinu Bogha Solanki to be released upon furnishing a bond of Rs 1 lakh. He will also not be allowed to travel outside the country, and has been ordered to deposit his passport with the court.

 

The case

RTI activist Amit Jethava was murdered in July 2010 outside the High Court. The investigation was eventually handed over to CBI. In 2019, a special CBI court sentenced Dinu Bogha Solanki and six others to life imprisonment for Jethava’s murder.

Solanki had challenged his conviction in the Gujarat HC.
