Indian Envoy Meets Choota Rajan in Bali


Bali: Sanjeev Agarwal, First Secretary consular at the embassy in Jakarta on Sunday met underworld don Chhota Rajan. He is the first Indian official to meet Rajan after his arrest.

The process for deportation of underworld don Chhota Rajan had begun earlier even as India and Indonesia are to expedite the work on implementation of an extradition treaty. Rajan, one of India’s most wanted criminals and a leading figure in the Mumbai underworld, was arrested at Bali, Indonesia, on October 24.

Rajan is wanted for at least 68 cases in Mumbai alone, including over 20 murder cases and other serious offences under MCOCA, POTA and the Arms Act. On the other hand, Joint team of CBI, Delhi Police and Mumbai Police left for Indonesia to seek deportation of Chhota Rajan late last night.
