CBI begins probe into 4 more cases against Chhota Rajan

Mumbai: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has initiated probe into four more separate cases registered by the Mumbai police against gangster Chhota Rajan, including those lodged between 1995 and 1998.

All the cases registered by the Mumbai police against Chhota Rajan were transferred to the CBI

The CBI took over the matter and registered the separate FIRs on Tuesday in the cases which were registered in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 1998 at separate police stations.

In October last year, the CBI had also begun probe into five cases against Rajan, including those related to his initial days when he was working as an alleged bootlegger with his mentor Rajan Nair alias Bada Rajan over three decades ago. Those cases were registered by the Mumbai police in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.

With four new FIRs, the number of cases against Rajan Sadashiv Nikalje, alias Chhota Rajan, being probed by the agency, has increased to 80.

All the cases registered by the Mumbai police against Chhota Rajan were transferred to the CBI following an order issued by the Ministry of Personnel in November 2015 after his arrest.
