Yavatmal: Police have arrested Pratap Udaysingh Solanki (35), the alleged mastermind behind the burglary at the house of Shiv Sena MLA Sanjay Rathod at Digras in January.

A Yavatmal police team headed by Inspector Nilesh Brahmane nabbed Solanki on Saturday night from Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh.

Police also recovered a Maruti Swift car used in the crime.

On February 08, police had arrested three persons in the case. On Friday, police arrested Solanki`s brother-in-law Avinash Chauhan (22) from Nagpur railway station, whose questioning led to Solanki`s arrest.

Both Solanki and Chauhan hail from Anandpur, Vidisha.

The gang had allegedly murdered the watchman at the MLA`s bungalow before breaking in.

Police have invoked the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act in the case.
