Charitable work and the ongoing issue of gang violence
The loss of Tillu Tajpuriya, a genuine follower of Lord Shiva, has devastated his parents and those who knew him. Despite his involvement in criminal activities, he was known for his charitable work and dedication to the community.
Tillu Tajpuriya’s death has also reignited the issue of gang violence in India. Gang violence has been a persistent problem in the country, and it has claimed countless lives over the years. The government has been criticized for not doing enough to combat organized crime, and the recent incident has highlighted the need for a more muscular law enforcement apparatus.
Tajpuriya was involved in several high-profile incidents of gang violence over the years. In 2021, he was a key player in the gunfight at Rohini Court, which resulted in the death of gangster Jitender Gogi. Tajpuriya’s gang, along with Gogi’s group, had been involved in a bloody gang conflict that had claimed many lives from both sides.

The rivalry between Tajpuriya and Gogi dates back to their college days. They were close friends, but tensions developed between them when they backed different candidates for the vice president in the student elections. While Gogi teamed up with other gangsters, Tajpuriya began developing relationships with criminals like Neeraj Bawana, Naveen Bali, Sunil Rathi, and Cheenu.

The gang battle between the two groups grew more violent, and both sides’ members were killed repeatedly. Sumit and Devendra Pradhan of Tajpuriya’s gang and Arun Commando and Niranjan, Master of Gogi’s gang, were murdered.
In 2016, Tillu Tajpuriya and Vikas, one of his colleagues, were detained in connection with the murder of Niranjan from the Roht village of Ghuskani. Before his arrest, the local police had offered a reward of Rs. 50,000 for anyone with information about Tajpuriya’s whereabouts. The gang rivalry persisted, and in 2018, four people were killed in a gang fight between the two groups in Burari, Delhi.
