Rohini Court Shootout

On Tuesday ( October 5, 2021), a Delhi Court remanded accused Naveen Dabas in police custody for two days for allegedly being involved in a criminal conspiracy to kill Jitender Jogi in a recent shootout in Rohini Court. 

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Satvir Singh Lamba stated that because the material and relevant aspects of the alleged conspiracy and the identity of the suspects are unknown, a police remand is required.

The court stated that, “Therefore, considering the facts and circumstances of the case as well as keeping in view the nature of offence, application moved on behalf of IO is allowed in the interest of justice for proper and fair investigation to unearth the entire conspiracy as well as to bring true and real facts of the case on record. Accordingly, the accused Naveen Dabas@ Balli is sent/remanded to police custody for 2 days subject to his medical examination as per rules.”

The prosecution claimed that on the orders of Naveen Dabas Balli, one of his associates, Naveen Hooda Bhanja, brought one "Nepali," who had arrived at Rohini Court dressed as an advocate and armed, to join the other assailants in order to murder Jitender Gogi.

It was thus submitted that interrogation in custody was necessary to unearth a deep-seated conspiracy as well as to identify and arrest the co-accused persons in the case.

Advocate Nitin Vashist represented the accused, while APP Sharawan Kumar Bishnoi represented the State. 

The allegations in the case are that inside Rohini Court Room No. 207, where Jitender Maan Gogi was brought for a physical hearing, two assailants, Rahul Tyagi and Jaideep, shot him dead.

The assailants were apprehended by the vigilant Delhi Police Force, and a FIR was filed under Sections 186, 353, 302, 120B, and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, as well as sections 25, 27, 54, and 59 of the Arms Act, 1959.

When Gogi was brought into the courtroom, the assailants dressed as lawyers attacked him. Witnesses told the media that the judge and court personnel were present when the horrific incident occurred. Images have emerged of litigants and lawyers fleeing for safety in the midst of the shootout. 

The Delhi High Court's bench led by the Chief Justice recently took suo moto cognizance of the gun firing incident.

Earlier, in the aftermath of the firing incident, Justice Rekha Palli issued a notice on a petition seeking directions on Delhi Police and the Delhi Bar Council to take measures to ensure the safety and security of Delhi District Courts.
