I was able to receive _ready and _process in my GDNative C++ class already and was trying to capture InputEvent in _input. The method is declared as:

void Lantern::_input(godot::Ref<godot::InputEvent> event)

So, what is the correct way to define _input method inside GDNative C++?

Have you tried with

_input(InputEvent *event);

?

Yep, it was my first attempt.

Use Variant:

void Lantern::_input(Variant event)
{
    Ref<InputEventJoypadButton> joy_btn = event;
    if (joy_btn->get_button_index() == GlobalConstants::JOY_SONY_TRIANGLE && 
        joy_btn->is_pressed())
        Godot::print("Pressed Triangle");
}

You can also call input events outside of _input(Variant event) using:

void Lantern::_process(float delta)
{    
    Input* input = Input::get_singleton();
    if (input->is_joy_button_pressed(0, GlobalConstants::JOY_SONY_X))
        Godot::print("Pressed X");
}
