New Delhi: Multiple shots of firing has been reported in the Delhi’s Rohini court area, in which gangster Jitender Gogi died on the spot.
Gogi was brought to present in the court.
Initial information said that he was shot dead by rivals, while three others have been killed and some have been injured too.
Delhi Police in the past few months has launched an offensive against its most wanted criminals and has been successful in arresting Jitender Maan alias Gogi, Delhi’s most-wanted gangster, who was carrying a bounty of Rs 6.5 lakh on his head, and was arrested by Delhi Police along with his three accomplices, from Gurugram in March this year.
Gogi’s turn to a life of crime began over a decade ago during his college days when a friendship with Sunil Maan a.k.a Tillu, turned into a bitter rivalry, following Gogi’s alleged murder of one of Tillu’s close friends. The two, reportedly, also differed on which candidates to support during an election at Shraddhanand College.
In an act of vengeance, Tillu is believed to have killed a friend of Gogi’s, triggering a gang-war that terrorised the nation’s capital. The two rival gangs tussled to fill a vacancy in the underworld caused by the Delhi Police’s Special Cell’s neutralisation of gangster Neetu Dabodia and capture of his successor, Neeraj Bawana, in 2013.
Gogi was apprehended and imprisoned at Tihar Jail in 2015. However, his desperation to kill Tillu, who was jailed at Sonipat jail, led him to plan an escape that eventually took place in July 2016, while Gogi was being transported from Tihar Jail to Narwana in Haryana. Although Gogi managed to escape, four of his accomplices, including national-level boxer Deepak Pahal and female athlete Parveen Pandhi, have since been arrested.
