Call For Rajasthan Bandh After Karni Sena Chief Shot Dead

New Delhi: At a time when  Rajasthan is under the process of a regime change after the BJP defeated the Congress in the recently held assembly elections, the supporters of prominent Rajput leader Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, who was shot dead in his Jaipur home, have called a state bandh today after he was shot dead in his Jaipur home.

Gogamedi, who led a fringe outfit called Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, was shot dead by three men who just had tea with him in his living room.

A gangster closely associated with the Goldie Brar gang and Lawrence Bishnoi, has taken responsibility for the murder in a Facebook post.

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.

The Rajput leader’s sensational murder sparked protests in Rajasthan.  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.
