Gangster Chhota Rajan's deport to India delayed

Bali, Nov 3 (IBNS): Chhota Rajan, the most-wanted gangster arrested in Bali after a two-decade chase, will be deported to India on Wednesday, reports said.

His return to India, which was scheduled on Tuesday, had to be delayed due to volcanic eruption which led to shut down of the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali.

All flights have been grounded, media reports said.

A volcanic eruption at Mount Rinjani near the island had reportedly disrupted flights.

Chhota Rajan had earlier said that he wants to return to India.

He had earlier told the Bali Police that he wanted to go to Zimbabwe and was afraid that he would be killed in India.

The 55-year-old gangster, who has 71 cases of murders, extortion and drug trafficking against him in Mumbai, has also claimed that he didn't surrender.

Bali Police Commissioner Reinhard Nainggolan had told NDTV that Rajan was desperate to go to Zimbabwe and didn't want to go to India because his "wife and father are dead." His wife, however, is alive and lives in Mumbai.

"He asked us to release him as he wanted to go to Zimbabwe. He said that he lived in Australia and before that in Zimbabwe and wanted to go there," the officer said, adding that the gangster was "nervous and smokes constantly."

Rajan has been hunted by the police in many countries after an Interpol Red Corner notice in 1995.
