A squad of Mumbai Police Crime Branch would be a part of the team which travels to Bali to bring back the gangster Chhota Rajan and would also brief the Central Home Ministry on the process of the documentation of the offences committed by the Underworld Don. Mumbai Police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni said that one officer from our force has left for Delhi today, who would be briefing the Home Ministry with reference to the communiqué made to us on Tuesday. The Union Home Ministry had asked Mumbai Police to make an in depth documentation of the offences committed by the arrested gangster in his home turf where he is wanted in over 75 cases together with suspected role in murder of investigative journalist J Dey. Following the directives, the Crime Branch had formed a team to compile the history of the 55-year-old underworld don, who had been on the run for two decades.
