NEW DELHI: On Thursday, the widow of slain Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena President, Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, revealed that her family had constantly demanded security from Rajasthan’s Director General of Police and former Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, after receiving multiple threats to their lives over the phone.

She also stated in the FIR that her husband had informed her about gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and Sampat Nehra’s gangs plotting to kill him.

“No security was provided to my family despite threats and repeated requests. We wrote letters on February 24, March 1, and March 25, but nothing happened.

We also learned that on February 14, the Punjab Police wrote a letter to the DGP Intelligence (Rajasthan), informing me that my husband was on the radar of killers.

Despite receiving all such inputs, the Rajasthan DGP and CM Ashok Gehlot did not provide us with any security,” read the FIR copy.
