Rohini court transforms into a gunfight arena, judges and advocates safety back in limelight.

At least four people were shot dead by attackers dressed in black gowns in a Rohini court in New Delhi on Friday afternoon, including wanted gangster Jitendra alias Gogi. The assailants are thought to be members of the rival Tillu Tajpuria gang. Approximately 35-40 bullets were fired in courtroom 207 during the altercation.


The Special Cell apprehended Gogi in Gurugram two years ago. Gogi's network, according to police, included more than 50 persons. The attackers were shot and killed by security officials in the courtroom, according to the Delhi Police Special Cell. When Gogi was brought before the court in Rohini Court number 2, the incident occurred. Shortly after, Special Judge Gagandeep Singh was admitted to the hospital with low blood pressure.


This shooting occurred in a court in the national capital at a time when the security of courts and judges is being scrutinised, particularly in light of the death of Dhanbad judge Uttam Anand in a hit-and-run case. Following requests for the formation of a special force to protect judicial officers, advocates, and courts, the Centre recently told the Supreme Court that it is the responsibility of state governments to provide protection to judges and court premises.
