Chhota Rajan may be brought to India this week
New Delhi, Oct 27: Chhota Rajan who was arrested in Bali, Indonesia is expected to be brought down to India by the week end, sources say. A team of the CBI and the Mumbai police will work out the modalities with Indonesia and bring him down to India, sources also say.
Indonesian officials have indicated to India that there will be no delay what so ever in handing over Rajan. The CBI which is the nodal agency of the Interpol in India is in touch with officials in Indonesia.
A CBI official informed that they see no hiccups in the deportation process and it could happen anytime this week.
India and Indonesia have shared good ties and this will help in having Rajan extradited soon. Although there is no formal treaty with Indonesia on extraditions, both countries say that it would not stand in the way and the process would be completed soon.
A team of the Mumbai police which has the maximum number of cases against Rajan will accompany the CBI team to Bali. Once Rajan is with the Indian agencies, he will be brought to Mumbai and lodged in jail there.
The Mumbai police had Rajan on the wanted list for several offences ranging from murders to extortion threats. The murder of journalist J Dey is a major case for the Mumbai police who had ascertained it was Rajan who plotted it.
Mumbai police officials say that once the formalities are completed all arrangements would be made to lodge Rajan in a high security jail. His security is very important as he is very high on the hitlist of the D Gang which has vowed to kill him no matter where he is.
The enmity between Rajan and Chhota Shakeel is a well known fact. Shakeel had even planned on assassinating Rajan in Australia, the officer also informed.
