Chhota Rajan: All You Need To Know

... Indian Express:

Underworld don Chhota Rajan is one of India’s most wanted criminals who has been on the run for nearly two decades. Born in Mumbai, Rajan is wanted for multiple charges including murder and possession and use of illegal firearms. In 2000, there was an attempt on his life when Dawood’s men tracked him down to a hotel in Bangkok but he managed to escape through the hotel’s roof. Rajan has been arrested in Bali by Indonesian police which acted on a Red Corner Notice issued by Interpol. Rajan had been living in Australia under another identity and had reportedly been in discussions with Indian authorities. The arrest was made on a tip off from Australian police that 55-year-old Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje alias Mohan Kumar alias Chhota Rajan, the powerful aide-turned-rival of terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, has flown from Sydney to Indonesia’s popular tourist destination Bali, where he was arrested on Sunday.
