The murder was believed to be the fallout of a dispute between the Patel and the Kshatriya leaders of the party over a multi-crore heritage property in Gondal. Jadeja and other were accused of firing at an open jeep driven by Nilesh Rayani on February 8, 2004.
In 2010, Jadeja, along with 13 others, were acquitted by a fast-track court in Rajkot. However, one of the accused, Samir Siraj, was sentenced to life imprisonment. The BJP legislator's acquittal was challenged in the Gujarat High Court.
