Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi murder

The incident occurred on December 5 when Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi was fatally shot at his residence in Shyam Nagar by two assailants, Nitin Fauji and Rohit Rathod. The arrangements for Nitin Fauji were facilitated by the arrested Ramveer Singh in Jaipur, according to the Jaipur Police Commissioner's official statement. 

The commissioner also mentioned that on November 9, Nitin Fauji and his associates fired at the Mahendragarh Police Station Sadar and subsequently went into hiding. During this period, Nitin Fauji sent his friend Ramveer to Jaipur on November 19. One of the assailants, Naveen Shekhawat, was killed at Gogamedi's residence during a confrontation with the police. Additionally, one of Gogamedi's security guards sustained injuries in the crossfire, according to the police.

It also alleged that the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena chief had been seeking security for the last two years but no help was given to him by the Congress government. Karni Sena leader Mahipal Singh has said that no oath-taking ceremony will take place in the state until the killers of Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi are encountered. Mincing no words, he further alleged that Ashok Gehlot-led previous government in the state did not provide security to Gogamedi, that is why this incident happened today. The CCTV footage of the incident has also surfaced, showing assailants firing indiscriminately at Gogamedi.
