Jitender Maan Gogi: India gangster shot dead in Delhi court

Jitender Maan Gogi
Gogi was arrested in Delhi in March 2020 on charges of murder and extortion.

Two men posing as lawyers shot dead a notorious gangster inside a courtroom in India’s capital, Delhi.

They opened fire at Jitender Maan Gogi inside the courtroom where a case was being heard against him.

Officials say police returned fire, killing the two men. Police suspect a rival gang planned the attack.

Gogi was on Delhi police’s most-wanted list and he was also an accused in dozens of cases – including murder, kidnapping and fraud – in other states.

The incident has raised questions over the security of Delhi’s courts. A senior politician said that the incident showed a serious lapse in security planning.

Gogi was arrested in Delhi in March last year on charges of murder and extortion.

Officials said he was a target of many gangs due to his swift rise in the crime world. Reports say his career in crime began when he was a teenager and initially involved incidents of carjacking and theft.

But later he was a prime suspect in many high profile killings, including that of a popular singer in Haryana state.
