Chhota Rajan Claims Fake Passport Issued To Protect His Identity While He Helped Fight Terrorists

Published on 8 September, 2016 at 12:53 pm By

Reiterating the claim that he was helping Indian authorities “fight against terrorists”, gangster Chhota Rajan has told a Delhi court the fake passport he had in the name of Mohan Kumar was issued to him by Indian intelligence agencies.

Rajan, the biggest rival of India’s most wanted man Dawood Ibrahim, was arrested last year in Indonesia. He has been accused with cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy in the passport case.

In his statement to the court via video conference from Tihar Jail, Rajan said, “I have been involved in fighting against terrorists and those anti-India forces who are bent upon damaging our country and killing innocent citizens… I cannot name people who have helped me or to whom I have extended help to in the fight against terrorism in national interest.”

He said that the fake passport was issued to him after Dawood’s men, who were trying to kill him in Bangkok 16 years ago, were able to get their hands on his original passport in Dubai.

He said that the passport helped him keep his “identity secret so that I can help those people who are involved in the protection of our territory”.

Before his arrest, Rajan, whose real name is Rajendra Sadashiv Nikalje, had been on the run for 25 years. He claimed that Dawood’s men “came to know that I was supplying information to Indian agencies about the perpetrators of the 1993 Mumbai blasts”, which killed 257 people.

Dawood Ibrahim, who lives in Karachi, Pakistan, as a free man is the main accused in the Bombay bomb blasts. One of the most wanted men in Interpol’s list, Ibrahim has been declared a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the United States, which also said that his organization has ties to Pakistan’s ISI.
