Gangster Accused In Delhi Court Shootout Killed By Rivals In Tihar Jail

New Delhi:

Jailed gangster Tillu Tajpuriya was killed in an attack by rival gang members inside a Delhi prison today, officials have said.

Tillu Tajpuriya alias Sunil Mann was thrashed with iron rods by gangster Yogesh Tunda and his aides at Tihar prison early this morning.

He was rushed to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital where the doctors declared him dead on arrival.

Tillu was the prime conspirator in the 2021 Rohini Court shootout in which gangster Jitender Gogi was killed.

Two members of the Tillu gang had shot dead Jitender Gogi inside the Rohini court on September 24, 2021. Both then were killed in retaliatory firing by the police.

“Two men dressed as lawyers opened fire at Jitender Gogi inside the court. That’s when police retaliated and killed those two assailants. It’s not a gang war,” police had told NDTV.

The shooting was the result of a rivalry of years between Jitender Gogi’s gang and the Tillu gang, the police said.

A preliminary investigation into the case had revealed that the instruction to kill Jitender Gogi was given on phone by Tillu Tajpuriya.
