Another horrifying video of Tajpuria murder has surfaced
Days after Tillu Tajpuria was killed inside Tihar Jail by members of his rival gang, another CCTV chilling visual emerged on Friday showing the gangster stabbing himself in the presence of Tihar Central Jail officials. This is the second CCTV visual of the gruesome massacre, showing fellow inmates continuing to stab Tajpuria, the main accused in the Rohini Court shootout, in front of uniformed personnel who did not intervene.
The CCTV video, which is from 6:15 am on May 2 and was obtained from the Central Gallery of Tihar Jail, shows some men bringing out the body of gangster Tillu Tajpuria. Visuals later show two other men slashing and slashing the body with a knife in the presence of police personnel.
In the footage, police personnel can be seen standing near Tillu Tajpuria, who is lying on the floor, watching as three men with weapons slashed the gangster who came out of the lockup grill.
The first CCTV footage shows Tajpuria being stabbed
The first set of CCTV footage surfaced on Thursday showing the gruesome murder of gangster Tillu Tajpuria, allegedly by members of the rival Jitendra Gogi gang, inside the high-security Tihar Jail.
The 2.36-minute-long video showed the assailants barging into an isolated area inside the prison and using knives, kicks and punches in a brutal attack aimed at ensuring Tajpuria’s death.
The disturbing footage has raised significant concerns about the level of security within Tihar and the apparent lack of action from the authorities to quell the violence. According to reports, Tajpuria was attacked more than 50 times by the assailants.
