    Jakarta: Fugitive underworld don, Chhota Rajan alias Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, wanted in a series of murders in India, has been arrested in Indonesia after decades on the run, police said Monday.

    Acting on a tip-off from Australian police, Indonesian authorities detained 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 gangster had been on the run for two decades. Interpol had flagged him as a wanted man back in 1995.

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

    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 Mumbai, and is wanted for multiple charges including murder and possession and use of illegal firearms.

    Not Chhota Rajan but Cyanide Mohan was arrested in Indonesia? | Zee News

    Bali: The Indian man, who was arrested in Indonesia on Sunday, was serial killer Mohan Kumar (better known as Cyanide Mohan), not underworld don Chhota Rajan.

    Earlier, reports had claimed that fugitive Chhota Rajan, wanted over a series of murders in India, was arrested in Indonesia after decades on the run.

    However, other reports suggest the arrested Indian is Mohan Kumar.

    Mohan Kumar, the former Indian primary school teacher, is facing the death penalty in his homeland for the murder of 20 young women.

    He was arrested on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, police said on Monday.

    Mohan Kumar is accused of using cyanide to kill the women from 2003 to 2009. A Mangalore court had sentenced him to death in December 2013.

    He was arrested on Sunday after arriving at Bali's airport from Sydney, based on a red notice from Interpol and following a tip from Australian authorities, said Denpasar Police chief detective Reinhard Habonaran Nainggolan.

    Nainggolan said police were questioning Kumar and coordinating with Indian diplomats.

    He said Kumar told police that he had been hiding in Australia for years to avoid arrest, and had planned a 15-day vacation in Bali.

    Kumar faces possible deportation, which could happen in days, or extradition, which could take more than a month, Nainggolan said.

    Where ?

    Chhota Rajan: Six things to know about the gangster | Zee News

    New Delhi: Fugitive Chhota Rajan, wanted over a series of murders in India, has been arrested in Indonesia after decades on the run. Here are a few facts about him which you would like to know:

    1. Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, better known as Chhota Rajan, was a black marketeer at Sahakar Cinema at Chembur. His family belongs to a village in Satara.
    2. Studied till Class V, Rajan joined a gang led by Jagdish Sharma. It was in 1979 Rajan gained fame when he attacked and injured five cops with their own lathi during crackdown on black marketeers.
    1. Chhota Rajan joined Bada Rajan’s gang and took over the reins of the group after the latter’s murder. Chhota Rajan’s months-long quest to kill the murderer of Bada Rajan caught the attention of Dawood Ibrahim. Impressed by Chhota Rajan’s determination, Dawood Ibrahim invited the Bada Rajan’s successor to join his gang.
    2. Dawood Ibrahim and Rajan split after the former orchestrated a series of bomb blasts in Mumbai in 1993. Their enmity has continued since then.
    3. After the split, Rajan formed his own gang. Reports of bloody shootouts between Rajan and Dawood's gangs have been common since the split.
    4. Wanted for a series of murders in India, Rajan was finally arrested on October 26 as he arrived in the popular resort island of Bali from Sydney.

    Chhota Rajan arrest: Prelude to operation Dawood or return of a ‘friendly’ don? - The Hindu


    There is a renewed vigour to hunt down India's enemy No. 1 Ibrahim, ever since Narendra Modi government came to power
    Ever since the Modi government came to power last summer, the Indian security establishment has acquired a new vigour in hunting India’s enemy number one — Dawood Ibrahim. His associate-turned-arch-rival Chhota Rajan was expected to play a part in the hunt that was expected to partly define Modi government’s security posture.

    Rajan’s meek surrender in picturesque Bali wasn’t part of the narrative that many in the security establishment had been speculating for sometime now. Or, is it a masterstroke to secure the friendly don, as the hunt for Dawood reaches its climax?

    For those watching the underworld, Rajan’s arrest is intriguing for many reasons. After the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, of which Dawood was allegedly a key conspirator, Rajan proudly displayed his Hindu credentials to move away from Dawood and cosy up to Indian agencies.

    Crucial role

    In the years after the serial blasts, Rajan’s gang played a crucial role in neutralising many of Dawood’s associates and financial assets. His role was crucial to the Mumbai police and intelligence agencies that were overwhelmed by the communal flare-ups and the deep tentacles of Dawood gang in the commercial capital and global financial markets.

    The most vivid record of Rajan’s links to the Indian agencies came in 2005, when his associate Vicky Malhotra was intercepted on a Delhi road while travelling with Ajit Doval, the present National Security Advisor. A U.S. embassy cable that emerged later said: “The media originally speculated that the IB wanted to use Malhotra to target and kill Ibrahim if he travelled to Dubai to attend the reception [for his daughter’s wedding]. According to this theory, Doval acted as the conduit between the IB and Malhotra.”

    Two explanations

    For all these years, Indian intelligence knew Rajan’s exact location. The question then is why did the CBI suddenly alert the foreign polices about an international alert issued some two decades ago? Why would a man with such close ties to the Indian security establishment suddenly face arrest in Bali?

    There are only two explanations: One is that he is no more of any use. The other is that Rajan’s surrender is a masterstroke to ensure that he is deported to the safety of Indian jail.

    In recent months, some developments have given a hint of what Rajan’s life had become. Intercepts had showed that Chhota Shakeel, Dawood’s Man Friday, had planned to eliminate Rajan in Australia. But Rajan was tipped off well in time. Despite his efforts to withdraw into anonymity and peace, his past kept catching up with Rajan.

    [​IMG]

    Of late, Rajan was known more for his bluster in media than anything else. Many observers had deduced that he had withdrawn into a post-crime life of peace somewhere in Australia.

    Many are wondering if Rajan was acting out a script to secure himself in an Indian jail, rather than roam around perpetually haunted by threat from his rivals, especially Dawood. Or if he was of no use any more to the Indian agencies, and they decided to score one last point with his arrest.

    If Rajan’s plan was to secure himself in an Indian jail, then the coming days could be bloody in the Mumbai underworld. He wouldn’t have been offered this safe passage into India without a bargain.

    And that bargain could only be about Dawood.

    1993 Mumbai bombings were part of the on going proxy war and in wider sense linked to Cold war .

    Mafia gangs even understood that they were being used against their own nation and for us Indians , our country is our identity.

    Dawood was RAW men in Dubai. ISI succeed in getting him involved in Bombay bomb blast. Dawood realized the mistake and wanted to come back but that did not realized. Re repented a lot. RAW developed Chota Rajan to take his place. When he was injurded last time, RAW officers immediately went to malasia/ Indonesia to bring him back for treatment.
