Former cop rejects chhota Rajan's claim against Mumbai cops

Ghaziabad, November,3 : Former IPS officer Y.P. Singh on today rejected Chhota Rajan's claims linking some Mumbai cops with India's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. 

"Chhota Rajan is just speaking the half truth. He is not speaking the full truth. Dawood Ibrahim indeed might be having connections with the Mumbai Police because no gangster can flourish till the time they get permission from the local police, but by the same reckoning Chhota Rajan and his gang members can have intimate connections with the Mumbai Police," said Singh.

He asserted that Rajan's claim that only people linked to Dawood have connections with the Mumbai Police and not his men was not the correct preposition.

He also said it was not legally right for the Delhi Police to take up Rajan's case as it falls under the jurisdiction of the Mumbai Police.

"When an FIR has been registered, it has to be investigated by the local police. He has to be sent to remand to the local magistrate. The trial of the case shall be conducted by the local session court which is having jurisdiction over that specific area," he added.

Singh pointed out that it was legally necessary to seek permission from the Supreme Court in case this matter has to be shifted to Delhi.

The six-member joint team from the Mumbai crime branch, Delhi Police special cell and the CBI were at the Bali Police Headquarters yesterday here to meet Rajan and continue the deportation process.

The joint team is carrying all the relevant documents needed for Rajan's deportation, including his crime history and a court warrant against him.

Previously, he was arrested on October 24.He is wanted for at least 68 cases in Mumbai alone, including over 20 murder cases and other serious offences under MCOCA, POTA and the Arms Act.
