Major protests have broken out throughout the state of Rajasthan following the death of Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, the leader of the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, in Jaipur. The police have named two suspects, and in a Facebook post, mobster Rohit Godara claimed responsibility for the murder.
But the question that has been bothering everyone is why Godara, who was associated with the Lawrence Bishnoi group, assassinated Gogamedi.
In 2019, Godara was the primary suspect in the Sardar city of Churu murder of Bhinvraj Saran. Additionally, he has admitted to being the reason for the 2022 murder of mobster Raju Thehat.
According to a senior law enforcement official acquainted with the case’s inquiry, the Lawrence gang started extorting money from merchants and real estate brokers via Rohit Godara following Thehat’s death to incite fear throughout Rajasthan’s Shekhawati region.
These businessmen were close to Gogamedi; several of them. Property billionaire Mahipal Singh, a Ratangarh resident, received threats on December 8, 2022, a year ago, allegedly in the name of mobster Rohit Godara. Subsequent information revealed that Singh had received an audio message over WhatsApp that read, “This is Rohit Godara. Please arrange Rs 50 lakh by December 15th.” If not, you’ve already witnessed Sikar’s effects. You will need to pay money if you wish to continue working in the future.”
A few days later, on December 15, Singh got a call with a message that said, “This is Rohit Godara. Give a yes or no response. We won’t give you another call.”
A police official, speaking on Mahipal Singh’s case, informed India Today that Gogamedi and the Anandpal gang had Singh’s back and persuaded him to turn down the ransom money that the Lawrence gang had reportedly forced the criminal to turn over.
“Apart from this, Gogamedi had openly come forward against Lawrence Gang in many other cases, which gave way to enmity between both of them,” according to the official.
In response to many threats from the Lawrence gang, Gogamedi’s younger brother, Manjeet Pal Singh, publicly expressed support for the resentful businesspeople and real estate brokers.
