New Delhi: Giving security agencies vital leads underworld don Chhota Rajan has made some new revelations against Dawood Ibrahim and his vast network. According to a report published in DNA, reports say that Rajan has significant investments in Australia, Thailand and Malaysia.
Rajan was brought to New Delhi early Friday from the Indonesian tourist city of Bali by a joint team headed by CBI officials to face trial in over 70 cases of murder, extortion and drug smuggling in Delhi and Mumbai.
Deported after being on the run for 27 years, the 55-year-old gangster, whose real name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, landed at Palam airport along with seven-member team which included officials from Delhi Police’s elite Special Cell and Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch in an IAF’s Gulfstream-III aircraft.
Ahead of Rajan’s arrival in India, Maharashtra government made a surprise announcement of handing over all the cases related to the underworld don to the CBI as the agency had expertise in handling such cases. This move comes barely a few days after the state Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had been making claims that Rajan will be brought only to Mumbai.

The probe agency booked Rajan and unknown public servants in a fake passport case.
