Chota Rajan and His well-wishers in politics made it easy for him

Almost all the underworld war lords have some or other connection with politicians and respective governments. Time again this fast was established by IPS officers and media too. Now, Former Delhi police commissioner Neeraj Kumar has claimed that the Indian government has a special relationship with underworld don Chhota Rajan, who was deported from Bali in November last year..The book, which was released last year, also was in the news for its disclosure that that at one point in the 1990s Dawood wanted to surrender.

Before getting deported to India, Raajan had spelled out the names of Mumbai Police an officer who has or has had links with India’s most wanted, Dawood Ibrahim. More over some sources even said he is going to expose the names of politicians and journalists who had underworld links but looking at his own future in Indian soil he yet not declared any names.. Rajan has proved one thing, and that is the biggest gangster worldwide wears khaki and khadi , and in India no gangster can survive without participation by police or politician. The motives and plot behind his arrival is not sure but Modi was keen in bringing Dawood to India but they caught Rajan. Rajan had earlier claimed that some in the Mumbai Police were in touch with Dawood Ibrahim. As per the report, Rajan told CBI during interrogation today that some retired Mumbai Police officers had acted as a bridge between Dawood and senior cops. Rajan, after his arrest, had also expressed reservation over plans to lodge him in a Mumbai jail, fearing that Dawood may target him there. Rajan was brought to New Delhi early today from the Indonesian tourist city of Bali by a joint team headed by CBI officials to face trial in over 70 cases of murder, extortion and drug smuggling in Delhi and Mumbai. He was taken straight to the CBI headquarters where he was subjected to a preliminary round of questioning.

Due to security concerns, Rajan, who has reportedly tipped Indian security agencies about the movement of Dawood Ibrahim and his aides, is unlikely to be taken to a Delhi court and instead a magistrate will be brought to the CBI headquarters for his remand. Upon his arrival here, he was taken into preventive custody of Interpol division of the CBI till the central probe agency completes legal formalities for registering a case of allegedly procuring fake passport and takes over the 70 cases handed over by Maharashtra government. Ahead of his arrival in India, Maharashtra government made a surprise announcement of handing over all the cases related to the underworld don to the CBI as the agency had expertise in handling such cases. This move comes barely a few days after the state Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had been making claims that Rajan will be brought only to Mumbai.

Let it be plot or favour by BJP what’s so ever but finally one dreaded gangster back to India. Maharashtra CM assured his security but no one believed his words and he was taken to Delhi. Anyways, Maharashtra is always over burdened with the heavy amount of expenses to secure the criminals and gangsters, from Abu Salem to Kasab and now Chota Rajan, hundreds of crores to be spent for protecting them where as farmers are committing suicide. State has many crucial issues to be addressed, govt collecting donations to do relief work but they can afford to spend for a gangster. Irony is that BJP will be taking extra care of this gangster who is called as Hindu terrorist by so called media.
Rajan had alleged that “some members” in the Mumbai Police have links with wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. Which is world known fact, each gangster let it be Rajan, Dawood or Gawli had their Khaki shooters in department and Khadi goons to protect them. Many a times nexus between the men in khaki and the Mumbai underworld has come to light, More over now Chota Rajan accusing police officers as Dawood counterparts is purely his insecurity and fear. Ever since, late 90s, the methods adopted by ‘encounter specialists’ of the Mumbai police to eliminate gangsters have come under scrutiny. These men were accused of carrying out fake encounters as agents of the underworld. Just three men, Pradeep Sharma, Daya Naik and Ravindra Angre have more than 240 encounters between them. Pradeep Sharma, who is in judicial custody, was arrested for ordering one such encounter. He has a staggering total of a 104 encounters to his “credit”.

Daya Nayak, with 85 encounters under his belt, was arrested for underworld links and owning disproportionate assets. He was reinstated in 2010, but has not been given any post yet. Ravindra Angre, responsible for 52 encounters, was arrested for assaulting and trying to extort money from a local builder and has been granted bail only recently. Rajan’s main areas of operation, according to information from intelligence reports and his arrested aides are printing counterfeit currency and drug trade. The Interpol listed him as a wanted man in 1995 for carrying out 17 murders. Rajan was believed to be operating in south East Asian countries and also believed to be passing information about Dawood’s involvement in the 1993 blasts to Indian intelligence agencies. Irony is that worlds all top intelligence, Interpol and Rajan’s so called information could not nab Dawood so far, even Osama been laden was killed but Dawood was never ever caught or traced. Who will buy the argument of Rajan are such predicaments?
Government agencies might be taking all the credit for capturing Chhota Rajan, but if sources in Mumbai Police are to be believed, the infamous gangster was the architect of his own arrest. After more than two decades on the run from the authorities and his arch rival and former crime boss, Dawood Ibrahim, advancing age and the need to constantly look over his shoulder got to Rajan (55), and he decided to turn himself in. now he is right here in our country with all luxuries and security in jail..let’s see how he will be bailed out or proven guilty.
