Murdered In Tihar Jail: Accused In 2021 Rohini Court Shootout Case

Tillu Tajpuriya, a jailed gangster and a suspect in the 2021 Rohini court shooting case, was reportedly murdered inside Tihar Jail early on Tuesday by members of the Gogi gang, according to authorities. According to prison authorities, the incident happened at 6.30 am. At Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital, he was pronounced dead after being transported there. A senior jail official said that about 6.15 am, four convicts associated with the rival Gogi gang reportedly assaulted 33-year-old Sunil alias Tillu Tajpuriya, who was housed on the ground level of the high-risk ward. The assailants, Yogesh alias Tunda, Rajesh, and Riyaz Khan, were housed in the same ward on the first floor. They reportedly used bedsheets to descend to the bottom level of the high-security ward and broke the iron grille there before assaulting Tajpuriya with an unprovoked sharp weapon, the officer said.

Around 6.45 am, a wounded Tajpuriya was treated at the jail's outpatient clinic before being taken to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital. The jail official reported that he passed away while being treated at the hospital. He had been stabbed several times. Akshat Kaushal, an additional deputy commissioner of police for the west, said that at 7 am, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital informed him that two indigent inmates from Tihar Jail had been transported there.

Tajpuriya was the one of the two who was brought in unconscious. He was pronounced deceased, according to Kaushal. Rohit, another individual, is reportedly receiving treatment and is safe. In the Rohini court complex in September 2021, two assailants posing as lawyers shot and killed the gangster Jitender Gogi. The police then opened fire in retaliation, killing the attackers.
