Underworld don Chhota Rajan, who was arrested in Bali on October 25, has alleged that some members of the Mumbai Police work with India’s most wanted terrorist, Dawood Ibrahim.
“The Mumbai Police has done a lot of ‘atyachar’ (astrocities)…Some members of the Mumbai Police are working in tandem with Dawood. I will keep on fighting against terrorism and Dawood. I am not scared of Dawood,” said Rajan.
He, according to reports, also claimed that the Pakistan Army has enhanced the security after the arrest of Rajan in Indonesia. “Delhi government taking note of that should do justice to me,” Rajan told reporters.
Rajan is expected to be produced before a court soon, where the Indonesian police will submit details of the cases for which he is wanted in India. As Indian officials have already reached Indonesia and started proceeding, he is likely to be deported to India soon.
“The entire process is likely to be completed in the next two-three days,” an Indian official said on Monday. “The government can keep me anywhere – Delhi or Mumbai.”
The Indian team, comprising of CBI, Mumbai Police and Delhi Police, for the first time, questioned Rajan, at a detention centre, in the presence of Indonesian officials.
Rajan was arrested on the basis of a Red Corner Notice from the Interpol, and following a tip-off by Australian authorities to the police, in Indonesia.
Mumbai Police have the maximum number of cases registered against Rajan, including 20 for murder, four cases under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act, one under Prevention of Terrorism Act, and over 20 cases under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.
