Ramveer, identified as the son of Satveer, is believed to have played a key role in the murder.
JAIPUR: In a major development in the Gogamedi murder case, Jaipur Police have arrested the first suspect, Ramveer, a 23-year-old resident of Sureti Pilaniyan, Mahendragarh, Haryana. He was apprehended from his village on Saturday.
Ramveer, identified as the son of Satveer, is believed to have played a key role in the murder of Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena President Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi. He is known to be an associate of the shooter, Nitin Fauji.
Police sources said that Ramveer arranged logistics in Jaipur for Nitin Fauji, who along with Rohit Rathod, is accused of killing Gogamedi. The incident, which occurred on December 5, involved the duo firing indiscriminately at Gogamedi’s residence in Shyam Nagar, Jaipur.
Post-murder, Ramveer reportedly aided the escape of Nitin Fauji and Rohit Rathod, ferrying them on his bike beyond Bagru toll plaza and arranging their departure on a bus from Nagaur depot of Rajasthan Roadways.
The assailants had used a stolen phone to make calls during their escape, eventually hiring a Swift car to reach Sujangarh, from where they boarded a bus to Delhi, sources added.
Additional Police Commissioner Kailash Chandra Bishnoi said that Ramveer and Nitin Fauji, who is currently serving in the army, have a shared history, having studied together in 12th grade at RPS Senior Secondary School, Mahendragarh. Post-school, while Nitin joined the army, Ramveer pursued higher studies in Jaipur, recently completing his MSc in Math.
Nitin Fauji, the primary accused in the shooting, comes from a family with a military background. His father is a retired army personnel, and his elder brother is also serving in the army. Nitin has been a part of the army for approximately 5 years, currently posted in the 19 Jat Battalion in Alwar.
