Rajkot gaming zone fire: Prime accused who fled after fire broke out arrested

Rajkot gaming zone fire: Banaskantha Local Crime Branch and Rajkot Police arrested the main accused in the Rajkot TRP game zone fire incident on Sunday, according to police.

The accused has been identified as Dhaval Thakkar, a resident of Abu Road. He had fled after a fire broke out in the game zone, which killed 28 people.


Earlier, on Monday, a court in the Rajkot district sent three men arrested in connection with the game zone fire to 14 days in police custody.

The court of additional judicial magistrate BP Thakar remanded three accused, Yuvraj Hari Singh Solanki, Nitin Jain, and Rahul Rathod, in police custody for two weeks, special public prosecutor Tushar Gokani stated.

Speaking to the media on Monday, Special Public Prosecutor Tushar Gokani stated, "Today the accused were brought before the honourable court and further police custody of 14 days was sought. Out of 6 accused named in the FIR, 3 accused persons were arrested, of which two are named in the FIR and one of them was not named."

"The main reason for remand was that they did not cooperate during the investigation. They (the accused) provide 'evasive replies' to whatever questions and documents are posed. They say it was burned in the incident. They are not cooperating in the investigation, and that was the main reason for seeking their cooperation and extracting the truth from them," said the officer.

He claimed that the accused Solanki tried to put on an act in order to convey to the court that he was deeply sorry for what had occurred. "When he entered the courtroom, he tried to project remorse for the incident, and everyone assumed he was crying. After five minutes, he was laughing and arguing with the court," Gokani explained.

"This very accused seemed like he was crying as soon as he entered the court but in just a few minutes he started laughing and he said that 'these kinds of things happen,' which was taken in a serious note by the honourable court," Gokani said.
