Mumbai : A special court in Mumbai convicted gangster Chhota Rajan and five others on Tuesday in a 2012 attempt-to-murder and extortion case. The case was filed against them by a Mumbai hotelier B R Shetty.
Special court judge A T Wankhede convicted the six under various sections of the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). The hotelier B R Shetty was shot at in suburban Andheri when he was going to meet his friend in 2012.
Rajan is currently in Tihar jail in Delhi after his deportation to India. He was arrested in Indonesia in October 2015.
Though they have been convicted, quantum of punishment will be pronounced later.
