In A Delhi Courtroom, Gangster Shot And Killed By Two Gunmen Posing As Lawyers
Firing at Rohini Court: Notorious Jitender Mann 'Gogi,' a Delhi mobster, was being arraigned in court when members of the rival "Tillu gang," masquerading as attorneys, barged in and opened fire.
Three gangsters were slain in a firefight inside a Delhi courtroom, injuring numerous people and raising severe security concerns in what should be a tightly guarded and sanitised zone. Gunshots can be heard in the courtroom, and police officers and attorneys can be seen scrambling in the building in Rohini, North Delhi.
Gunmen masquerading as lawyers stormed a courtroom, shooting mobster Jitender Gogi three times. Special forces escorting the criminal returned fire, killing both attackers on the spot. There were a total of 30 rounds fired.
Jitender Gogi, a prominent mobster who had been imprisoned in Tihar since last year and was engaged in various criminal cases, was confirmed dead in hospital. When he was brought in for his court appearance today, a rival group is known as the "Tillu Gang" intended to kill him, according to the police.
“Inside the court, two members of a rival gang opened fire on Jitender Gogi. “The cops acted swiftly and killed both the assailants,” said Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana. Mr Asthana remarked, "Total three dead, including Gogi."
The incident exposes a major security flaw on court grounds.
“The judge was in court, lawyers were present, and Jitender Gogi was present,” a lawyer, Lalit Kumar, stated. These two lawyers (who turned out to be gunmen disguised as lawyers) entered the room and began shooting. “An interception was also fired.”
The two gangs had been at odds for years, according to reports, and more than 25 individuals had died as a result of their conflicts.
Tillu Tajpuria and Gogi Tajpuria were supposedly pals in college, but their feud evolved into a gang war in 2010. Gogi, whose real name is Jitender Mann, was apprehended in March of last year and was seen as a major target by the Delhi police. The event has sparked doubts about whether the court's metal detectors were operating, and if so, how the armed men managed to get past them.
“The topic of whether the metal detectors in the courtroom were not operating is under review, and I am unable to say at this time. We are already looking into the matter, and no one involved in the shootout will be spared. Mr Asthana stated, "No one will be spared."
“Delhi Police is doing its job seriously,” he added. Because we were efficient and focused, the shooter was successfully neutralised. We'll have more to say after a thorough investigation.”
