Nitin Fauji


On 5 December 2023, Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, the President of the Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena (SRRKS), was fatally shot by three unidentified attackers inside his office-cum-residence at Jaipur’s Shyam Nagar. Despite being rushed to the Metro Mas Hospital, he succumbed to his injuries and died. Following the attack, wanted criminal Rohit Godara Kapurisar openly claimed responsibility for Gogamedi’s murder via a Facebook post which read,

Ram Ram, to all the brothers I am Rohit Godara Kapurisar, Goldie Brar. Brothers, today Sukhdev Gogamedi was murdered. We take full responsibility for this. We have got this murder done. Brothers, I want to tell you that he used to cooperate with our enemies. Used to strengthen them. As far as enemies are concerned, they should keep their funeral bier ready at the doorstep of their house. Will meet them soon too.”

Notably, Godara had previously claimed responsibility for the murder of another gangster Raju Thehat in Sikar, Rajasthan. Godara is associated with the Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gang who are notorious for planning the murder of popular Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala and issuing death threats to Bollywood celebrity Salman Khan. According to the Facebook post, Godara killed Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi because the latter supported their enemies.

Gogamedi’s murder was captured on the CCTV camera, which showed the two men firing multiple shots at him. Jaipur (south) deputy commissioner of police Yogesh Goyal revealed that the two assailants were identified as Rohit Rathore Makrana from Jaipur and Nitin Fauji from Mahendragarh, Haryana. Meanwhile, some media houses reported that the two assailants were identified as Rohit Singh Shekhawat and Nitin Fauji.

In the retaliatory firing, one of Gogamedi’s security personnel Ajit Singh (also spelt as Ajeet Singh) was seriously injured, and one of the assailants Naveen Singh Shekhawat was killed. The other two attackers quickly fled the scene. Reportedly, Naveen Singh Shekhawat was an acquaintance of Gogamedi. He brought the attackers to Gogamedi’s house in a car around 1 pm. At first, the guards at the gate stopped the car and refused to let them, but then Naveen made a call to Gogamedi, who then instructed his staff to send the trio to the room where he would routinely meet office-bearers and supporters of his outfit. Reportedly, Nitin Fauji was also in touch with gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang. Police Chief Umesh Mishra set up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) led by Additional Director General (Crime) Dinesh MN to investigate the killing. A cash reward of ₹5 lakh for information leading to the arrest of the two accused was also announced. During the investigation, the family of Nitin Fauji claimed they had no contact with him in the previous few weeks. Nitin’s father stated that Nitin had gone to get his car repaired on 9 November and he hadn’t heard from him since. Meanwhile, Nitin’s classmates and villagers were shocked at his involvement in the incident and said that he was a good student.
