Meanwhile, one of Gogamedi's security guards sustained bullet injuries in the exchange of fire with the assailants. The incident was caught on CCTV. Gogamedi formed Shri Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena after he was expelled from Sri Rajput Karni Sena in 2015 over differences with its founder Lokendra Singh Kalvi. Both these outfits had protested against Deepika Padukone starrer 'Padmaavat' in 2018 over alleged distortion of historical facts about the Rajput community.
