Solanki and his aides Koli and Koli were accused of possessing bottles of liquid used to erase ink marks on finger to facilitate repeat voting during a election.

Solanki was then contesting as an independent candidate.

Police filed a charge sheet against Solanki on May 10, 1999, and showed him as an absconding accused.

Solanki moved the local seeking discharge from the case. The court, in May last year, dismissed his plea and issued an arrest warrant in August.
