In a complaint registered with Jawahar Circle police, Gurnani, a resident of Frontier Colony in Adarsh Nagar, alleged that he had received several VoIP calls on January 8. 

The caller identified himself as Rohit Godara, a resident of Bikaner and demanded Rs 5 crore as protection money. In another call, the caller identified himself as Lawrence Bishnoi, the notorious gangster, and told Gurnani to pay Rohit the money.

“You must have received the call from Rohit. Pay attention to what he demands from you. Otherwise, you will lose your life,” the caller said. 

Gurnani says that he didn’t pay attention to the threats because he thought that the threats were not serious. Then the attack on G-Club proved him wrong. 

Jaipur police commissionerate has deputed 20 teams consisting of 150 policemen in search of the shooters and other accused including Rohit Boxer alias Roit Godara and Anmol Bishnoi.

In a Facebook post after the firing at G-Club, Rohit had threatened that it was just the beginning and that others are also their target. 

“Your number will come,” the post read. Rohit’s Facebook posts have been a open challenge to the police. On December 16, he posted a photo of himself on Facebook showing off guns. 

Two shooters had fired about 16-17 bullets at G-Club located at Airport Plaza while over 100 guests were in the hotel. The shooting was meant to scare the hotel owner.
