Jitender Gogi, who was killed during firing in Delhi’s Rohini court, was arrested in April under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) by Delhi Police’s Special Cell.
Jailed gangster Jitender Gogi, who was earlier this year found operating freely from behind the bars, was killed during firing at Delhi’s Rohini court on Friday. According to initial information, Gogi was shot dead by rivals while being presented at the court. Three other people have been killed and a few injured.
“Two assailants in 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 ‘Tillu’ gang were “neutralised” by the officers. He clarified that it was “not a gang war”.
Sources, however, told that in March 2018 ‘Tillu’ gang member was shot down allegedly by Gogi gang in Rohini court vicinity.
Gogi was arrested in April under 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.
A Times of India report had earlier quoted police as saying Gogi, now 30, had started dealing in 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.
