Gangster Chhota Rajan said in Bali on Tuesday that he would keep on fighting against terrorism and wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim.

Underworld don Chhota Rajan on Tuesday alleged that “some members” in the Mumbai Police have links with wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and said he would keep on fighting against him.

“Some members of the Mumbai Police are working in tandem with Dawood. I will keep on fighting against terrorism and Dawood. I am not scared of Dawood,” said Rajan, a close confidante-turned-rival of Dawood, the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

To be produced before court

Rajan, who was arrested in this popular tourist town on his arrival from Australia on October 25, is expected to be produced before a court soon where the Indonesian police will submit details of the cases for which he is wanted in India.

He is likely to be deported to India soon. “The entire process is likely to be completed in next two to three days,” an Indian official had said on Monday.

“Cases against me false”

“The government can keep me anywhere — Delhi or Mumbai. But there should be no injustice done to me. All cases against me are false,” Rajan, who is wanted in over 75 heinous crimes ranging from murder, extortion to smuggling and drug trafficking, told reporters when asked whether he was afraid of returning to Mumbai.

“The Mumbai Police have been unjust to me. The Delhi government taking note of that should do justice to me,” he said.

An Indian team has been working with its Indonesian counterparts to take over Rajan’s custody.

Detailed dossier

The Indian team, comprising officers from CBI, Mumbai and Delhi police, arrived here on Sunday and they came along with a detailed dossier on 55-year-old Rajan and his involvement in various crimes in India.

The team for the first time questioned him on Monday in the presence of Indonesian police at the detention centre where he has been lodged for the last 10 days.
