The 71 cases registered against underworld don Chhota Rajan with the Maharashtra Police have been taken over by the CBI.

The state government had issued a notification earlier, transferring the cases to the CBI, and assured the central agency that it would depute officers, if necessary, to assist it in the matter. A highly placed source in the home department told The Indian Express, “Since Chhota Rajan’s deportation from Indonesia on November 6, it was clear that the CBI would look into the cases related to Rajan.”

The source said it had been made clear that even if the state police were to take his custody, at some point it would have had to rope in the CBI in matters related to economic offences and aspects that would be beyond the jurisdiction of the police.

A senior officer said, “In all the 71 cases related to the Maharashtra Police, the state has furnished all details along with case papers to Delhi.”
