New Delhi: India is expected to send a multi-agency team comprising senior officials from the Intelligence Bureau, the Central Bureau of Investigation’s Interpol division and Mumbai police’s crime branch to Indonesia later this week to bring back underworld don Chhota Rajan who was arrested in Bali on Sunday.
The Indian home ministry is coordinating efforts by various agencies to prepare a detailed dossier on Rajan’s involvement in organized crime, particulars of his Red Corner notice and details of his family members in India which would help confirm that Rajan is indeed an Indian national and wanted in criminal activities here. The dossier will be handed over to the Indonesian security agencies while seeking Rajan’s deportation to India, a senior government official said requesting anonymity.
There is no extradition treaty between India and Indonesia.
Rajan, a former associate of wanted terrorist and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, has been on the run for almost two decades after an Interpol Red Corner Notice was issued against him in 1995.
Major Reinhard, an Indonesian CID officer, told India Today news channel in Bali that
During interrogation Rajan said he had been living in Australia and Zimbabwe for the last few years, India Today news channel reported, citing Indonesian police officer Major Reinhard. Rajan does not want to be sent back to India fearing a threat to his life, the report said. Rajan wants to go to Zimbabwe instead, it said.
