Apparently, he gets VVIP treatment and all luxury amenities in India’s most dreaded prison Tihar Jail.
We have seen in the Bollywood fiction movies that don gets VVIP treatment and five star’s facilities by the jailor. However, here it’s not a movie. Since underworld don Rajendra Nikalje alias Chhota Rajan deported from Bali in Indonesia his family having holiday time with him in Tihar Jail.
The police personal from the jail on the condition of anonymity confirmed that the former friend turn foe of India’s Most wanted Don Dawood Ibrahim is enjoying luxurious lifestyle in jail as compared to his other inmates. He told, “Dreaded don who has more than 70 cases of murder, half murder and extortion is being provided with a television with a loudspeaker.”
“He plays loud music on it which irritates many of his adjacent cell inmates. He is also provided with all sorts of facilities from food to clothing.”
Rajan’s family frequently visits him and spiritually he is high at peace in prison. “His family is being treated as most VVIP guest in jail.”
His VVIP treatment can also be confirmed by the letter written by Bihar’s underworld don turn politician, former RJD’s MP from Siwan Mohammad Shahbuddin, who is also lodged nearby to Nikalje’s cell. The Siwan muscleman is furious over Rajan being provided a TV in his cell. Shahabuddin, in his complaint, has told the jail officials that loud music being played inside Rajan’s lockup is troubling him.
Chhota Rajan was brought to India from Bali, Indonesia in October 2015.
Why Chhota Rajan getting special treatments?
If we believe on rumours then Chhota Rajan’s deportation and arrest was a big political gimmick played to help him get back to his native soil. Moreover, he would be helping government and Intelligence agencies to trace the location of Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar. Because bringing back Dawood was PM Narendra Modi’s poll promise in 2014. Chhota Rajan is known as ‘patriotic don’ for his anti-Muslim stand after the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blast.
The Central Bureau of Investigation has registered three cases of extortion and murder believed to be carried out by the Chhota Rajan gang. The CBI took over the investigation into the cases on Maharashtra government’s request.
The first case of extortion was lodged in April, 1999. “It was alleged in the complaint that during the period from March 2, 1999 to April 8, 1999, the accused persons identifying themselves as Rohit, John, Ashok, etc of Chhota Rajan gang made calls to the complainant and threatened him with dire consequences to extort money to the tune of Rs. 25 lakh,” said the CBI officer Gaur. The provisions of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act were applied in the case later, he said.
In the second extortion case that dates back to July 31, 2004, Gaur said the accused had barged into the office of the complainant in Mulund, Mumbai. They posed as members of Chhota Rajan’s gang and assaulted the complainant and his employee. They also demanded money at gun point.
The murder case was registered against two unidentified persons at Tilak Nagar police station in Mumbai. On October 7, 1998, Bala Kotiyan was shot dead at Navgrah Hotel where he had gone with his friend.
Rajan, 55, is facing more than 70 criminal charges. He was arrested by the Indonesian police in Bali on October 25, 2015. After the Maharashtra government decided to hand over his dossier to the CBI on the eve of his deportation to India on November 6, 2015, reports began to surface that Rajan had spoken of a nexus between Mumbai Police officials and gangster Dawood Ibrahim, the main accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
