Vadodara: The police arrested two residents of Savli taluka on Tuesday for pilfering 360 litres diesel from a truck on National Highway 8 on February 14.

Fatehsinh Solanki and Dharmendrakumar alias Dhamo Shah were arrested by Makarpura police on Tuesday from their homes in Savli. The duo had stolen diesel worth Rs 21,000 from the truck of Sunil Yadav, a resident of Haryana, when he had stopped at a restaurant to take a nap.

Solanki admitted that Narendrasinh alias Nando Solanki and Ajay alias Moko Chauhan were also involved with him.

Earlier too, Solanki had been booked by Savli police for causing hurt to a public servant while Shah is an accused in a robbery case lodged by Waghodia police. TNN
