SRINAGAR: A gangster identified as Rajesh Dogra, also known as Mohan Chir, was allegedly gunned down by four unidentified assailants outside a bustling shopping mall in Sector 67. The incident, which unfolded on Monday, has sent shockwaves across Jammu.

Dogra, aged 45 and hailing from Jammu, fell victim to the attack, believed to be a fallout of an ongoing gang feud. Eyewitnesses reported that the assailants had been lying in wait for Dogra, stationed outside the mall in two SUVs—one bearing a Chandigarh registration number, while the other was traced back to Jammu.

The attack was swift and merciless, with the perpetrators unleashing a barrage of gunfire, firing an estimated eight to nine shots at Dogra. Despite recent release from jail, Dogra’s past caught up with him, with authorities disclosing a troubling history, including eight FIRs filed against him.

Ropar Range Inspector General, Jaskaran Singh, has told reporters that preliminary investigations pointed towards the involvement of four individuals from Jammu in the assassination. One suspect has already been apprehended, with authorities seizing two vehicles, firearms, and mobile phones as evidence.

In the aftermath of the brazen attack, forensic experts descended upon the crime scene, initiating a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dogra’s demise. The tragic incident has underscored the urgent need for law enforcement to address the burgeoning threat of organized crime gripping the region.

Dogra was born in Reasi and later shifted to Jammu. He was earlier involved in Bakra murder case. Reports said Dogra was accompanied by two people who were not targetted by the assailants. He is reported to have received 15 bullets. Dogra was earlier arrested by the Public Safety Act.
