Jailed Gangster Jitender Gogi Killed by ‘Rivals’, 3 Others Dead in Delhi’s Rohini Court firing


Guwahati: Gangster Jitendra alias Gogi, who was Delhi’s most wanted, was shot inside Rohini court on Friday, reports IndiaToday. The incident happened in Rohini court number 206 when Jitendra was presented before the judge.

The attackers, dressed as lawyers, opened fire on Jitendra, killing him on the spot. The Delhi Police’s Special Cell killed the two attackers in the ensuing shootout. The attackers are believed to be from the Tillu Tajpuria gang.

The shootout left four people dead and one woman lawyer injured. Around 35-40 rounds were fired during the incident.

Jitendra was arrested from Gurugram two years ago by the Special Cell. Special Cell officials said there were more than 50 people in Jitendra Gogi’s network.

“Two assailants in the uniform of advocate fired upon Gogi in court, following which police also opened fire,” said Rohini DCP Pranav Tayal. Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana added that the killers, who belonged to the ‘Tillu’ gang were “neutralised” by the officers. He clarified that it was “not a gang war”.

Gogi was arrested in April under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) by Delhi Police’s Special Cell. The MCOCA proposal details 19 cases of murder and attempted murder, besides dozens of extortions, dacoities, carjackings and robberies.

Times of India report had earlier quoted police as saying Gogi, now 30, had started dealing in the property after dropping out of school and taken to crime after his father’s death in 2010.

“He fired at a man named Praveen in September 2010. Then, during elections at Shradhanand College, Delhi University, Gogi and his friends assaulted and shot at two men named Sandeep and Ravinder. Gogi was then arrested in October 2011. Thereafter, he formed a gang to earn money,” a 2018 FIR stated.
