NEW DELHI -- Security agencies are likely to send a team of officials in the next two days to bring back gangster Chhota Rajan from Indonesia where he is in custody since Sunday.
The sources are tightlipped about the exact arrangements to bring him back because of security concerns arising out of his fierce rivalry with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his gang.
They said agencies are working on more than one plan to bring back 55-year-old Rajan, once known as Dawood's right hand man, factoring various permutations and combinations.
When asked whether a team has been dispatched already to bring Rajan back, CBI sources did not reply but later said no details can be shared at this stage and everything will be done as per law.
Meanwhile, Rajan is believed to be living in Sydney on genuine documents issued to him there but with fake details such as name, age, address.
Rajan was travelling with the identity of Mohan Kumar with passport number G9273860 when he was apprehended at the Bali airport, after arriving there on a Garuda Indonesia flight GA715, by the Indonesian Police on a tip off from Australian authorities, they said.
The sources said Rajan was in touch with various police officials for last six months seeking a passage to return to India as he feared for his life in Australia from Chhota Shakeel, a henchman of Dawood.
Asked how soon Rajan would be brought back to India from Indonesia, where he was arrested two days ago, Rijiju said the laws in Indonesia and India were different and both countries were exploring them.
