The men can be seen firing at Gogamedi repeatedly in the 20-second video, even after he had stopped moving.



The right-wing leader of the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, drank tea with the men who killed him at his Jaipur home first. In a terrifying footage of the incident, the accused was seen sitting next to Gogamedi before shooting him, taking him by surprise. He was close-range shot at least five times, the last bullet going right through his brain.

The commander of the fringe outfit can be seen on CCTV staring at his phone when the individuals seated across from him got up and opened fire. The gunmen opened fire on him after seeing one of his guards attempt to stop them.

They (the attackers) sat with Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi for at least 10 minutes before shooting him, according to police.

The men can be seen firing at Gogamedi repeatedly in the 20-second video, even after he had stopped moving.

Reports state that the incident happened at approximately 12:30 PM today. After being hurt and being taken to a hospital, Gogamedi and two of his friends were informed that the well-known Rajput chieftain had passed away.

Unseen on the footage, one of the attackers was killed by the crossfire. According to the authorities, the other two escaped in the motorbike of two guys they had threatened with pistols.

One of the Goldy Brar gang members has taken credit for the killing. We accept complete accountability for the killing of Sukhdev Gogamedi, Rohit Godara Kapurisr said on Facebook. He said the incident was sparked by Gogamedi’s used to support their enemies.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) and several governmental agencies in the nation are looking for Canadian mobster Brar. The Punjabi artist Siddhu Moosewala’s murder is another reason he is wanted.

Gogamedi was a member of the Rajput Karni Sena, the group that had organised the demonstrations against the Bollywood film Padmaavat. Later, under the leadership of Lokendra Singh Kalvi, he broke away from the group and started his own group in 2015.
