Rajput leader's killing: Protests erupt in Rajasthan, Governor Mishra calls Amit Shah

Jaipur, Dec 6 (PTI) Markets were closed in Jaipur and some other Rajasthan districts and protesters blocked roads and stopped trains on Wednesday after a bandh call by the Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena over the killing of its chief Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi.

Governor Kalraj Mishra spoke to Union Home Minister Amit Shah over the phone and summoned the state chief secretary, home secretary, police chief and Jaipur police commissioner to review the law and order situation in the state.

A dharna which was going on outside the private hospital in Jaipur, where the body of Gogamedi was kept since Tuesday, was called off on Wednesday night after police assured the family members to arrest the accused in 72 hours and suspend the SHO of Shyam Nagar police station and other policemen guilty of laxity.
