A day after one of India’s most wanted criminals Chhota Rajan was arrested in Bali, sources revealed that Rajan may have struck a deal with intelligence agencies for arrest.
According to the sources, he was used by intelligence agencies to keep a close tab on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
After his fallout with Dawood, it is widely believed that Rajan sold his loyalty to the intelligence agencies.
In 2000, Dawood’s henchmen carried out an attack on Rajan which he survived but his health began to deteriorate. He has been undergoing dialysis since 2010. Dawood’s men reportedly made another attempt on Rajan’s life earlier in 2015 in New south wales.
In his last conversation with a close associate, Rajan expressed his apprehension about staying in Australia.
Rajan was arrested in Bali by Indonesian police which acted on a Red Corner Notice issued by Interpol.
The arrest was made on a tip off from Australian police that 55-year-old Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje alias Mohan Kumar alias Chhota Rajan has flown from Sydney to Indonesia’s popular tourist destination Bali, where he was arrested on Sunday.
