Dawood Ibrahim Plotting to Kill Chhota Rajan, Intel Warns Tihar Authorities

Underworld don Chhota Rajan is facing death threats

The security of Chhota Rajan, now lodged in Tihar Jail, has been reviewed in the wake of an Intelligence report that Delhi's top gangster Neeraj Sehrawat alias Neeraj Bawana is plotting to kill the underworld don inside the high-profile prison.

According to intelligence shared with Tihar authorities two weeks ago, Bawana might have been involved in a plot at to eliminate Rajan at the insistence of the latter's former boss Dawood Ibrahim. It was found that a top gangster from New Delhi, Neeraj Bawana was tasked with the job of killing Rajan inside the Tihar jail. This step was taken owing to the high security that is present in the Tihar jail.

"Rajan's cell is at the end of an alley in jail no. 2 while Bawana is in an isolated high-risk ward. At a time when fugitives like Vijay Mallya are complaining about the lack of security in Tihar and other Indian prisons, we can not afford to take any inputs on targets such as Rajan lightly", a senior jail official told Times of India.

The reason Rajan was sent to Tihar and not any jail in Mumbai or Maharashtra was because authorities felt it would be more hard for Dawood and his men to get to him inside the high-security prison. Reports suggest that a couple of cellphones were also recovered from Bhawana's cell before he was shifted to the other prison.


The developments unfolded in mid-November when Bawana's aide came out of the jail on bail, said a source in the security establishment. D Company has been planning and plotting to kill Rajan but have been unsuccessful for the past two decades. "At a time when fugitives like Vijay Mallya are complaining about the lack of security in Tihar and other Indian prisons, we can not afford to take any inputs on targets such as Rajan lightly", explained a senior jail official.

In 2015, Rajan was arrested in Bali on the basis of a Red Corner Notice from Interpol and following a tip off by Australian authorities to the police in Indonesia.

The D company has been trying to take down Rajan since he allegedly left them after the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

In 2000, there was an attempt on Rajan's life when Dawood's men tracked him down to a hotel in Bangkok but he managed a dramatic escape.
