Two shooters, who killed Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, the chief of the right-wing group Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, have been identified by the Rajasthan Police. The accused shot him multiple times from point-blank range yesterday in his house in Jaipur while having tea with him.

The police have formed multiple teams to find the accused and have announced a reward of Rs 5 lakh each for any information that can help them arrest the accused.

Director General of Police, Umesh Mishra, formed a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the murder, which has sparked tensions in the state. The supporters of the Rajput leader have called a Rajasthan bandh today after he was shot dead in his home. 

His supporters blocked the Shipra Path road outside the hospital and demanded that the accused be arrested immediately. Besides Jaipur, protests also erupted in Churu, Udaipur, Alwar and Jodhpur districts.

The victim had a criminal record in the Gogameri police station in Rajasthan and had around 30 cases filed against him. He was acquitted in several cases.

Rohit Godara, a gangster closely associated with the gangs of Goldie Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi, has taken responsibility for the murder in a Facebook post. Rohit Godara earlier threatened Sukhdev Godara and the Rajpur leader had filed a complaint against the gangster, police sources told NDTV.

Canada-based gangster Brar is a wanted criminal by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and various states of the country. He is also wanted for the murder of Punjabi singer Siddhu Moosewala.

Gogamedi and two of his associates suffered bullet injuries in the attack. They were rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him dead. One of the attackers was also shot dead by Gogamedi’s aides during a gunfight, police said.
