After the incident, a wanted criminal named Rohit Godara Kapurisar openly said he was responsible for Gogamedi’s murder in a post on Facebook, which read,

    Ram Ram, to all the brothers I am Rohit Godara Kapurisar, Goldie Brar. Brothers, today Sukhdev Gogamedi was murdered. We take full responsibility for this. We have got this murder done. Brothers, I want to tell you that he used to cooperate with our enemies. Used to strengthen them. As far as enemies are concerned, they should keep their funeral bier ready at the doorstep of their house. Will meet them soon too.”

    Godara had previously claimed accountability for the killing of another gangster, Raju Thehat, in Sikar, Rajasthan. Rohit Godara is affiliated with the Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gang. Bishnoi is infamous for his involvement in the murder of the popular Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala in 2022 and for issuing threats to Bollywood celebrity Salman Khan in 2018. Godara’s Facebook post stated that Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi was targeted because he allegedly supported their enemies.

  • During the retaliatory firing, one of Gogamedi’s security personnel, Ajit Singh (also spelt Ajeet Singh), sustained severe injuries, and one of the attackers, Naveen Singh Shekhawat, was killed. The other two assailants quickly fled from the scene. It is reported that Naveen was an acquaintance of Gogamedi. Naveen brought the attackers to Gogamedi’s residence in a car around 1 pm. Initially, the gate guards stopped the car and denied entry, but then Naveen made a call to Gogamedi, who instructed the guard to allow the trio inside the room where Gogamedi routinely met with office-bearers and supporters.
