New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday got ten-day custody of underworld don Chhota Rajan, who was brought to the national capital yesterday from Bali, Indonesia, in connection with a fake passport case.
CBI spokesperson Devpreet Singh said that Rajan has been booked under relevant sections of the IPC for obtaining a fake Indian passport.
“He used his fake passport to reside in Australia and travel to Bali on October 25 from where he was arrested,” said Singh.
Rajan, who was brought to New Delhi in a special aircraft after being deported from Indonesia, is currently under the custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Interpol.
In a surprise move, the Maharashtra Government has transferred all cases related to the gangster to the CBI.
Rajan is wanted for over 70 cases of murder, extortion and drug trafficking in Mumbai, the most prominent among them being the case related to the murder of journalist Jyotirmoy Dey and Pakmodia Street firing case.
