The police have made the first arrest in Rajput leader and Karni Sena chief Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi’s brutal murder at home.
Ramveer, who allegedly helped the shooters – Rohit and Nitin – flee the spot by taking them to Ajmer Road on his bike, has been arrested, the police said.
The arrested accused lived in the same village as one of the shooters, identified as Nitin, they added.
Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi was sipping tea with four men at his Jaipur home around noon on December 5, when suddenly, in the middle of a conversation, two of the men got up from their chairs and fired indiscriminately at Mr Gogamedi leaving him in a pool of blood on the floor.
The Rajput leader’s sensational murder, caught on CCTV cameras, sparked massive protests in Rajasthan which is going through a regime change after the BJP wrested power from the ruling Congress government in the recently held assembly elections.
