Who was gangster Raju Thehat?

Sikar: Raju Thehat, infamously known as Sikar Boss, was accused of running a major extortion racket, various killings and other crimes in the State for the past few years.

Thehat rose to prominence when he joined hands with ABVP activist Gopal Phogat. He later started making his name in the liquor trade, spreading his terror through criminal force alongside his partner Balbir Banuda.

Things soon turned sour between Balbir and Raju after the latter killed the former’s brother-in-law in the name of the business. Balbir soon joined hands with Anandpal Singh, Raju Thehat’s arch nemesis, and planned to get him killed.

Despite attempts, Raju Thehat got the drop on both Balbir and Anandpal Singh, planning attacks on both of them. Balbir Banuda was killed in 2014 while Anandpal died in an encounter in 2017. After the killing of both Singh and Banuda, members of their gang turned to Lawrence Bishnoi for asylum.

As the members of Thehat’s rival gang joined hands with the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, a plan was hatched to avenge the death of Balbir Banuda and Anandpal Singh. The police in Rajasthan has launched a manhunt to find those who were behind Thehat’s murder.
