    Gangster Chhota Rajan arrested in Bali: Reports

    JAKARTA: Indian fugitive Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, also known as Chhota Rajan, wanted over a series of murders in India, has been arrested in Indonesia, police said on Monday.

    Acting on a tip-off from Australian police, Indonesian authorities detained Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje on Sunday as he arrived in the popular resort island of Bali from Sydney, Bali police spokesman Heri Wiyanto told AFP.

    The 55-year-old Nikalje, an alleged crime boss in India, had been on the run for two decades, Wiyanto said, with Interpol flagging him as a wanted man back in 1995.

    "We received information from police in Canberra yesterday (Sunday) about the red notice for a murderer," he told AFP.

    "We arrested the man at the airport yesterday. What we know is that this man was suspected to have carried out 15 to 20 murders in India."

    Bali police were coordinating with Interpol and Indian authorities, Wiyanto said, adding it was likely Nikalje would be deported to India.

    A spokesperson for Australian Federal Police said Interpol in Canberra had alerted Indonesian authorities "who apprehended Nikalje at the request of Indian authorities".

    The federal police confirmed last month that Nikalje was living in Australia under another identity and had been in discussions with Indian authorities, the spokesperson said, but would not provide further details.

    Interpol's website states that Nikalje was born in the Indian city of Mumbai, and was wanted for multiple charges including murder and possession and use of illegal firearms.

    He runs an anti-Daud gang and is rumored to have RAW patronage. If he has been caught, Daud activity in Mumbai have a chance of rising again.

    Or it could be an elaborate Doval plan to arrest Rajan, put him in safe police custody while the Indian state gets on with a massive anti-Dawood op.

    Looking at the news reports from last few months it is clear that he was not able to tap the leak from his gang...it must be a planned move to ensure his safety..gov cant let him be killed before they could elimenate dawood...
    But whats really puzzling is why they would do it this way...there must thousands of discreet ways to ensure his safety...!!!

    Reason:- D company expanding their operations in mumbai rapidly & rajan wasn't safe out there also.....thats y R&AW bringing rajan back to safe heaven mumbai . so that he can operate freely n efficiently.
    Arrest :- So as planned chota rajan leaves from Sydney to bali. after he leaves Sydney....a call from ASIS Canberra made call to bali,telling them about wanted fugitive traveling from Australia to Indonesia with all details.
    And everything should go smoothly thats y chota rajan was made to travel by his original indian passport so that no need for extradition and he should be deported easily.

    He will be transferred to a jail, probably Arthur Road. This will be the information given to the public.
    In reality however, a decoy of him will be staying there.
    The real Chota Rajan will be locked away in a safehouse, protected by IB, just as a valuable prisoner should be. This will be his pension for whatever he has done, in favour of the country. Not everything in this world is black and white, and people vying for his blood better know that. Intelligence gathering and covert ops has myriad ways of working, sometimes clandestine and illegal, with help from criminal elements.
    I for one do not favour punishing him more than putting him under house arrest till the end of his days.

    I do not understand why some ministers have had to resort t openly threatening Dawood Ibrahim. It is well known to him that Bharatvarsh has this enemy in her crosshairs. He knows it well, we know it well. Empty threats do nothing more than bolstering the confidence of the enemy. We should keep quiet and look like looking the other way.

    I beg to differ, he surrendered, on his own. Seen the smile on his face? He is now under protection of RAW and IB, he need not fear for his life anymore.

    RAW, IB used 'patriotic' don against Dawood Ibrahim

    NEW DELHI/MUMBAI: While arrested gangster Chhota Rajan will be crucial to cracking cases such as the murder of journalist J Dey and other criminal or terrorism cases registered against him and others in Mumbai, there is little hope that he will have any new piece of information to share with Indian agencies.

    Sources in the security establishment say Rajan has been out of touch with the core underworld as he has led an isolated life since several years now.

    He had restricted the reach of his acquaintances even further in the past one year. He only made calls on VOIP using proxies to hide his location. At times, he made calls on Whatsapp.

    READ ALSO: Who is Chhota Rajan?

    Even as these reports have been doing the rounds, there is one theory that the arrest may have been stage-managed by Rajan himself as he wanted to return to India due to his ill health and feared being killed by rival Chhota Shakeel.

    "By December 2014, Rajan virtually had no members in his gang. He was in touch with some people from Uttar Pradesh and other states to get men for any job temporarily. He was finished as a ganglord," said an official who had been tracking Rajan's movements.

    This state of affairs is a far cry from the year 1998, when Rajan was detained in Thailand while travelling on a fictitious passport, but he walked out within a day. Sources said the Union home ministry as well as the security agencies were not interested in getting him extradiated.

    Officials said intelligence agencies were using him to counter fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim.

    Rajan was instrumental in eliminating certain ISI and Dawood aides, including Nepal MLA Dilshad Mirza Baig, ISI mastermind Khalid Masood, Parvez Tanda in Nepal- all with the blessings of the Indian intelligence. There were unconfirmed reports that Rajan was involved in the killing of Takiuddin Wahid Khan of East-West Airlines, suspected to be close to Dawood. He also allegedly orchestrated the killing of Nepal cable operator Jamim Shah, another D-Company aide.

    Senior police officials said Rajan always tried to portray himself as "a patriotic Hindu don" after his split from Dawood following the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai.

    The Intelligence Bureau and particularly the Research Analysis Wing (RAW), have in the past used Rajan against Dawood.

    READ ALSO: Dawood's latest, frantic bid to kill Chhota Rajan foiled

    In 2005, the agency had reportedly sent two Rajan aides - Vicky Malhotra and the late Farid Tanasha- to eliminate Dawood in Karachi. A senior official of IB who currently holds a senior post in the government, supervised the operation. But before that, Mumbai crime branch arrested Malhotra and Tanasha and booked them under the stringent MCOCA. This was the time when Dawood's elder daughter Mahrook was to get married to Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad's son in Karachi.

    "The plan was that when Dawood would arrive at the venue, the two shooters would kill him," said an officer.

    "As far as I can recall, it was Rajan who used his clout and paid a huge bribe to free himself in 1998," said a retired police officer. The second time Rajan slipped from the Thai policewas in September 2000 when Chhota Shakeel's shooter Munna Jingada carried out a serious attack on him in Bangkok. While Rajan was seriously wounded in the firing, his confidante Rohit Verma was shot dead. Rajan was admitted at Samitivej Hospital in Thailand.

    A team of five police officers flew to Thailand to record his statement and get him back to India but before this, Rajan's allies Vijay Shetty and Santosh Shetty helped him flee from the hospital. Thai government suspended five officials for negligence and a police officer came under the radar for allegedly aiding Rajan's escape.

    Chhota Shakeel claims credit for Rajan's arrest

    MUMBAI: Chhota Rajan's arch rival Shakeel Shaikh alias Chhota Shakeel claimed credit for his arrest in Indonesia. But Shakeel, who had orchestrated the fatal attack on Rajan in Bangkok in 2000, also said he was not happy with Rajan's arrest. "My boys were on the job in Fiji last week, and we had jammed him in his hideouts. He was forced to flee to Indonesia, which led to his arrest. The D Company is not happy with his arrest and our enmity does not end here. I want to eliminate him, and I will not rest. Even if he is deported my operation against him will continue," Shakeel told TOI.

    READ ALSO: Dawood was in talks to return to India, says Chhota Shakeel

    Shakeel said he was not concerned about whether Rajan would be extradiated to India or freed by Indonesia. "We don't trust the Indian government which has been pampering him and taking his help against us. What is the guarantee that he will face trial and be convicted? His detention or arrest is not our subject. Our funda (motto) is very clear: Dushman khatam ho (elimination of rival). I will not spare him wherever he is," said Shakeel.

    Dawood's lieutenant Shakeel, who has being trying to kill Rajan ever since the split in the gang occurred in the aftermath of the 1993 serial blasts, had carried out an attack on Rajan in Bangkok in September 2000. Shakeel's confidant Munna Jingada and two others had led the attack in which Rajan was seriously injured and hospitalized. Later, Rajan with the help of his confidants fled from the hospital.

    READ ALSO: Dawood's latest, frantic bid to kill Chhota Rajan foiled

    In the two-decade-old rivalry between the two gangs, several members from either side have been eliminated. Dawood's close confidant Sharad Shetty was the first to fall in the line of fire. Builder OP Kukreja, an airline managing director Takkiyauddin Wahid, Nepal MLA Mirza Baig, Nepal cable operator Jamim Shah and Parvez Tanda were among the others killed. Rajan in the late 90s started killing those responsible for engineering the Mumbai serial bomb blasts. Saleem Kurla, Majeed Khan and Mohammed Jindran were among those killed by his gang.

    Last year, the city crime branch foiled Shakeel's attempt to kill Rajan's most trusted aide Dilip Mallesh Bora alias D K Rao and Ashok Satadekar, secretary of the Sahyadri Krida Mandal.

    Why would RAW project him? Does he have resources that can be used to further India's national interests? Or is he just being protected by corrupt officials in RAW?

    Chota rajan has always been an unofficial/covert hand of RAW.He has been an asset to RAW.Dawood ibrahim being thirsty of his blood is enough proof of his work towards Dawood and his gang.


    I would like to believe that his arrest has been orchestrated by Indian agencies;to provide him with safe custody.But, on second thought,does our security agency really need to arrest someone to provide him protection!They could have easily smuggled him to any country including India and put him in their safe house,there was no need to get him arrested .Irrespective of how much Chota Rajan might have helped Indian agency we cannot not officially admit our relationship with him.For media and common people he is a criminal.They would want him to go under trial and face punishment.Therefore, if this is really a plan of Indian agencies to provide him protection then a very bad one indeed.


    There are two underworld don ,one is pro Pakistan and other is pro India ,being Dawood and Chota rajan respectively.One is Dawood who has grown strength to strength, be it money,muscle power,influence ,under ISI where as Chota Rajan has been on a downfall under RAW be it money,muscle,or influence and at last he is left a mere shadow of what he once was.Now ,this shows how ISI take care of their loyal soldiers and how RAW (India) mistreat those who are on its side.Many people would say that he is of no use to us now, so we can dump him,I do not agree with it .Loyalty should be a big word in intelligence world,loyalty is and should always be two ways .If you expect loyalty then you should also offer loyalty in return.Dumping your asset in his bad days is a treachery of highest grade in my eyes and even for those who would like to work for India in future or are working for it at present.If you are not willing to be loyal with people who helped you, then you should not complain in case of a double cross.



    If I was handling RAW ,I would make one thing crystal clear to all my agents and contacts all over the world,RAW will take care of you and your family in any circumstance ,anywhere ,at all times,at any cost.Raw would provide you with enough money that you and your family can live a decent comfortable life.But ,if you ever double cross us then we will track and hunt down you and your family.If you somehow manage to flee even to mars;we will come for you and your loved ones!So,through this I will convey one thing very clearly, if I will pay you one lakh ;you and your family should better enjoy that one lakh under us.But, if you decide to double cross us for 200 crores ,we will eliminate you and your family at all cost before you could even count that money of yours .So, please understand that one lakh under us is much greater than 200 crore over us.



    The essence of all this being "LOYALTY" ,loyalty from both sides.In case of Chota Rajan RAW should show this loyalty and take care of him.Chota Rajan will be seen as a prime example of how you get treated for working with RAW.If we treat him well ,more will be inclined to come under RAW cover else they will shy away from RAW in future and would choose to work for others . Those who are working for RAW will be inclined to change sides for money and safety ,depending on how RAW treat its former assets in time of trouble.So,there is lot at stake.I sincerely hope that RAW take care of its own legitimate or illegitimate assets under any circumstance.In my eyes an intelligence agency loses its worth if it fails to do these two things:

    1 Punish its traitors at any cost.

    2 Protect those who are loyal to it at any cost.
