The third assailant, Naveen Shekhawat, was killed at Gogamedi's residence during the exchange of fire with the police. One of Gogamedi's security guards was injured in the crossfire, police informed.
On Wednesday, two police personnel, including the station house officer (SHO), were suspended following the brazen murder in Jaipur
