The accused, Rohit Rathore from Rajasthan’s Nagaur and Nitin Fouji from Haryana’s Mahendragarh, allegedly met Gogamedi under the pretext of extending an invitation, only to carry out the heinous act.

Notably, one of the assailants, Naveen Singh Shekhawat, met his end during the escape, having reportedly rented an SUV for the crime. Liquor bottles were found in the vehicle. Rohit Godara, associated with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, had previously claimed responsibility, citing a land dispute with Gogamedi.

The police are exploring other angles in the investigation, considering the possibility of revenge for the killing of property dealer Vijendra Singh, who was associated with Gogamedi. Fouji, one of the accused, is allegedly an Army personnel on leave, adding another layer of complexity to the case.


To unravel the complexities surrounding Gogamedi’s murder, the Rajasthan Police has formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) led by Additional Director General of Police (Crime) Dinesh MN. A substantial reward is expected to be announced for any information leading to the arrest of the accused.
