Rajasthan Bus with cops Multiple attackers took turns shooting a criminal and his accomplice on a packed bus in Rajasthan after reportedly incapacitating six police officers who were escorting them to a court hearing.
Footage of the brazen murder shows the eight gunmen spending over two minutes on the Rajasthan Bus and walking out many times to reload their rifles, even as scared passengers climb out the windows to escape.
In a Rajasthan Bus with cops
On July 12, mobster Kuldeep Jagheena and his accomplice Vijaypal were being transported from the Jaipur Central Jail to a court in Bharatpur for a hearing. The two, both suspected of murder, were riding on a Rajasthan Roadways Rajasthan Bus with six police officers.
The CCTV film, which was released today, shows the Rajasthan Bus waiting at the Amoli toll plaza in Bharatpur when three males, one of whom is brandishing a pistol, approach it. They are seen standing at the bus’s entrance for a few seconds before a shot is fired, sending a few people fleeing to safety.
Two of the guys then approach the bus’s entrance and start shooting, while a third glances in through the windows, probably seeking for the targets. One of the guys enters the Rajasthan Bus and fires, then calmly exits and pushes three more shooters into.
Some people escape the vehicle via the entrance, while others climb through the windows. More gunmen approach the bus, and the men take turns departing the vehicle to reload once they run out of rounds, before returning to the vehicle and opening fire again.
This continues for over two minutes, until one of the shooters can be seen standing near one of the windows, shooting from outside. His companions then depart the bus, and the gunmen stroll away quietly.
Kuldeep Jagheena, a gangster, was proclaimed dead at a hospital, and his accomplice was severely hurt. Three other passengers on the bus were also injured.
Following a property dispute, Kuldeep and Vijaypal were accused of murdering Kripal Jagheena in Bharatpur in September last year.
Six of the eight assailants were captured, according to police, while the troops following the gangster were unable to open fire inside the bus because the attackers had thrown chilli powder in their faces. As the assailants fled, the soldiers pursued them and shot at their cars.
“Chilli powder was thrown into the faces of the police personnel who were accompanying the two men,” stated Bharatpur Superintendent of Police (SP) Mridul Kachawa. “There were no injuries among the officers.”
Kuldeep’s family members demonstrated outside the SP’s office and spoke with him to urge that the other defendants be arrested. They have also requested that Kuldeep’s father, Kumarjit, who is also imprisoned in Jaipur Central Jail, and Vijaypal be transferred to a Bharatpur jail.
“They shot and killed my brother,” Kuldeep’s sister stated. Other innocent people on the bus may have been slain as well. The accused should be prosecuted with terrorism-related offences.”
