Underworld don Chhota Rajan, who landed in India early this morning also has a look-alike. The Times of India reports that a person of the same build as Rajan would be roped in to confuse possible attackers and be on the job, right from the time Rajan lands at the IGI Airport at 6am on Friday.

The 55-year-old gangster, whose real name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, will be in Delhi, where he will be questioned by sleuths of various investigating agencies, as he has been making claims of having further evidence to nail India's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and his links with Pakistan's ISI.

Immediately after his arrival here in an Indian Air Force Gulfstream-III aircraft from Indonesia's Bali, Rajan, who is considered as a 'friendly don' as he reportedly tipped Indian security agencies about the movement of Dawood and his aides, was whisked away to an undisclosed location.

Official cars with flashing lights accompanied by armed escort vans were seen leaving the Palam Technical Area at around 5:30 AM, as anxious camerapersons and photographers made unsuccessful attempts to get a glimpse of the underworld don, who was in one of those vehicles with tinted glasses.

The 'look-alike' is required because Rajan is a likely target from Dawood Ibrahim's men as well as some of his own men, an assessment report says. Rajan and his doppelganger--both masked--will be taken from his detention centre in south Delhi, either to a hospital or a court. There will be a security posse of around 25-30 commandoes and cops armed with assault rifles, MP5 sub-machine guns and Glock pistols.
