Rajan Likely to be Brought in India Tomorrow


Jakarta: Most-wanted Gangster Chhota Rajan, arrested last week in Bali, is likely to be brought back to India tomorrow. The team comprising officers from the CBI and the Mumbai and Delhi police is meeting Rajan in jail.

An Indian team that reached Bali yesterday is working on his deportation. Rajan is likely to be brought to Delhi first, CBI said. Indian embassy official Sanjeev Agarwal traveled from Jakarta to Bali and met him for 45 minutes on Sunday.

The 55-year-old crime boss is wanted for over 70 cases of murder, extortion and drug trafficking in Mumbai. Following an Interpol notice in 1995, he spent two decades running from the police in various countries.

When Rajan was arrested at the Bali airport, he was carrying an Indian passport with the assumed name Mohan Kumar. Security of the Indian officials as well as that of Rajan has been enhanced due to the high threat perception to Rajan from Dawood Ibrahim.
