Underworld Don Chhota Rajan who has been on the run for over 27 years was finally brought to India form bali Indonesia where he was dramatically arrested. The wanted Don was brought to Delhi early on morning of November 6 by a joint team headed by CBI officials for facing trial in various criminal cases registered against him in Delhi and Mumbai.
According to media reports , the 55-year-old gangster, who had been on the run for past 27 years, kissed the ground on his arrival in Delhi. Rajan, whose real name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, will be kept in Delhi under CBI custody and will be questioned by the investigating agencies as he has been making claims of having further evidence to nail India’s most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and his links with Pakistan’s snooping agency ISI.
Immediately after his arrival in an Indian Air Force Gulfstream-III aircraft from Indonesia’s Bali, Rajan, who is considered as a ‘friendly don’ as he reportedly tipped Indian security agencies about the movement of Dawood and his aides, was whisked away to an undisclosed location under tight security.
Official cars with flashing lights accompanied by heavy-armed escort vans were seen leaving the Palam Technical Area at around 5:30am, as anxious camerapersons and photographers made unsuccessful attempts to get a glimpse of the underworld don, who was in one of those vehicles with tinted glasses.
Rajan had told media in Bali that he was happy to return to his motherland and had rubbished reports that his arrest was orchestrated as he was facing threat from Dawood’s men. Rajan, after his arrest, had expressed reservation over plans to lodge him in a Mumbai jail, fearing that his arch-rival Dawood Ibrahim may target him there.
Till the formalities of CBI to take over the Maharashtra cases are completed, Rajan will be in the custody of Special Cell of Delhi Police which has six cases registered against him. Strict security is in place at the CBI headquarters in Lodhi road where Rajan is held .
