gogi, tillu, gangsters, tillu and gogi, rohini court, shootout at rohini courtA very dramatic and well-planned encounter of Jitender Maan alias Gogi raises many questions on the law-and-order situation in Delhi. Gogi and Tillu were childhood friends and student politicians, went on to become deadly rivals, and for more than a decade, they fought a bloody turf war that spilt blood on the streets of Haryana and Delhi.

Gogi as a teenager excelled in sport (volleyball and athletics), represented his schools at several competitions, and got admitted to Delhi University (DU) on the sports quota.

There, he and his closest childhood friend, Sunil Maan, got sucked into student politics. Maan is now better known as gangster Tillu Tajpuria in police records.

The politics and greed of power have spoiled their equations and they became sworn enemies. for more than a decade, their names surfaced together in police files and case papers that detail how they have fought a bloody turf war that spilt blood on the streets of Haryana and the National Capital.

Had the two not trod into the student politics, their paths would not have crossed, and their names may not have been on Delhi Police’s most wanted list. Perhaps Gogi would not have been inside court number 207 at Rohini on Friday, where two gunmen, dressed as lawyers, waited for him and then shot him dead.

Once a close associate of Gogi, Kuldeep Maan alias Fajja, did a brutal mistake of posting a photo of three cups for Starbucks drinks marked “Rohit, Gogi and Fajjie” The police were able to trace the photo to a Starbucks outlet in Gurgaon. Police located them in a flat at Mapsko Casabella, Sector 82, and arrested them.

He was running his extortion racket even when he was in jail. He had formed an alliance with a gangster Sandeep alias Kala Jathedi thought to be in Dubai Jathedi was arrested on August 1, 2021, with his partner Anuradha Chaudhary alias Revolver Rani at a Dhaba on Saharanpur-Yamuna Nagar highway. He attempted to extort bid Rs 5 crore from a Dubai-based businessman. Fajja escaped from the GTB hospital and was killed in an encounter on March 27, 2021

The perpetrators of Gogi killing, identified as Rahul and Jagdeep were hired by Tillu and his associates were then shot and killed by Delhi Police. The killing raised serious concerns about the security measures in place in Delhi’s courts, with many questionings about how the men were able to barge into the court complex carrying weapons. This all was not possible without support from power.

The Special Cell was on the lookout for Gogi, Fajja and Gaurav for a long time before tracing them to their hideout in Gurgaon in March last year. Gogi was involved in the killing of Haryana-based singer 22-year-old Harshita Dahiya, who was gunned down by assailants in 2017 in Panipat. He carried a bounty of Rs 6.5 lakh— a reward of Rs 4 lakh in Delhi and Rs 2.5 lakh in Haryana on his head.

Gogi and his associates were also accused of killing a local Delhi leader Virendra Mann in Narela. He had allegedly killed Mann in broad daylight by pumping 26 bullets inside his body. He had also hogged the limelight for allegedly demanding Rs 5 crore from a Dubai businessman from Tihar Jail.

In video footage of the shootout involving the two attackers, who were from the rival gang–Tillu and Gogi, gunshots could be heard and policemen and lawyers have seen in a scramble. Delhi Police spokesperson Chinmoy Biswal confirmed that three assailants were dead along with under trial prisoner Gogi. But crime won’t stop here. This killing is spine-chilling and looking at the law-and-order situation one can say even Delhi courts are not safe for a human being.
