Police have identified both the accused in the murder of Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena president Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, who was shot dead inside his house by some unidentified assailants in Jaipur on Tuesday.
One of the accused has been identified as Rohit Rathore, a native of Makrana Nagaur, while the other one is Nitin Fouji, native of Haryana’s Mahendragath.
According to sources, the murder could have been a result of a land dispute. Reportedly, the Karni Sena chief Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi was involved in land disputes involving Rohit Godara.
Godara is a notorious gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang member who claimed responsibility of the murder soon after the death of the Karni Sena chief.
However, the police are investigating the case from other angles too.
Notably, a property dealer, Vijendra Singh, was killed last year. The accused were close to the Karni Sena chief. The police is also probing this murder as revenge to that murder.
‘RAJASTHAN BANDH’ TODAY
Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena and other community outfits called for a state-wide bandh in Rajasthan on Wednesday, following the killing of their chief Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi on Tuesday. Through the bandh, the community demanded a judicial probe into the matter.
In a CCTV footage, the attackers were seen whipping out their weapons and firing indiscriminately at Gogamedi, who was sitting on a couch opposite them and eventually fell down. Before fleeing, one of the assailants shot at a motionless Gogamedi lying on the floor from close range.
One of Gogamedi’s security guards sustained bullet injuries in the exchange of fire with the assailants, who had gone to his house in the Shyam Nagar area on the pretext of meeting him, police said.
