Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, Chief of Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena, Shot Dead in Jaipur

JAIPUR, India – In a shocking incident, Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, the chief of the right-wing group Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena (SRRKS), was shot dead by unidentified assailants at his residence in Jaipur, Rajasthan, on March 20, 2023.

The incident occurred in the afternoon when three armed men entered Gogamedi’s home and opened fire on him. Gogamedi was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. One of the assailants was also killed in retaliatory firing by Gogamedi’s security guards.

The motive behind the killing is still unclear, but police are investigating various angles, including personal enmity and political rivalry. The SRRKS is a Rajput community organization that has been involved in several controversies in recent years, including protests against the Bollywood film Padmaavat, which they alleged distorted historical facts about the Rajput community.

Gogamedi’s death has sent shockwaves through the Rajput community and has sparked protests across Rajasthan. The police have appealed for calm and have assured the public that they will bring the perpetrators to justice.
