Mumbai, Nov 2: When Chhota Rajan is brought back to India from Indonesia, he will face trial for a host of cases, but there are six of them which will trouble him the most.

These are the six cases that have been booked under the stringent provisions of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act.


All these cases registered by the Mumbai police will come up for trial once Rajan is questioned by the police.

These cases under the MCOCA range from extortion, murder and also attempt to murder. Officials in the Mumbai police say that in all he is wanted in around 75 cases, but these six under the MCOCA are the most serious.

In all these cases, the rest of the accused have been arrested and tried. However since Rajan was absconding the FIR against him is present. Once his body warrant is secured, he will be questioned in connection with all these cases before being put up for trial.

High security:

However, the biggest concern for the Mumbai police at the moment is the security of Rajan. All preparations are on to ensure that there is no let up in the security.

While he is most likely to be lodged in the cell that Ajmal Kasab was lodged in, the police are however not revealing much as it could compromise his security.

Even the team which left for Bali yesterday comprising CBI and Mumbai crime branch officials have been provided with commandos for security.

Such is the sensitivity of the case, an officer informed. The police say that they will not risk moving Rajan around too much and his trial proceedings will be conducted through video conferencing.

Medical arrangements too are being made for Rajan who is said to be suffering from an ailment. There are intelligence alerts citing a huge threat to Rajan's life and his assasins may look to carry out a hit either when he is being taken to court or hospital.

Such situations are being pre-empted, the police also added.

Rajan likely to return by Tuesday:

For now there have been no hiccups faced by the Indian team which is in Indonesia. All the paper work is moving smoothly and there are no pre-conditions laid by the Indonesian authorities who have Rajan in their custody.

He was provided consular access too yesterday.

Officials say that they are ensuring that the paper work is completed as soon as possible and are trying to bring back to India by Tuesday.

The team is in constant coordination with the officials in India who are chalking up a plan to ensure that Rajan's landing in India is free of hiccups.
